Gluten-Free Event Kicks Off Celiac Disease Awareness Month

Going gluten-free is a hot topic among those embracing a more healthful diet in 2011.  And new research estimates that gluten sensitivity may affect over 40% of the population. 

But for 3 million Americans, going gluten-free should be more than a lifestyle choice. Celiac Disease affects 1 in 133 Americans, yet 95% don't know they have it.

May is National Celiac Disease Awareness Month and the Celiac Disease Foundation is celebrating 21 years of raising awareness.

Monday, May 9th from 11a.m-2p.m join the Celiac Disease Foundation and Pam Mac D's Gluten-Free Market, (3516 W. Magnolia Bl., Burbank) to kick off National Celiac Disease Awareness Month!

I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed ce...

Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA al...

This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven? My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an...
