Celiac Disease on NPR June 15, 2009

Did anyone catch the early morning news on NPR yesterday? I turned it on in the middle of a very good piece on a family with celiac disease. The focus was on the recent diagnosis of a 15-year old boy. He was active in sports and had intermittent symptoms, until one day, they became constant and fairly severe. He was diagnosed fairly quickly, and responded well to a gluten free diet. In fact, that was the best part of the story. He explained that he felt nearly entirely well after only two weeks on a gluten-free diet, and the whole story was very positive, from his quick response and recovery, to his Mother's comment that, "thank goodness it wasn't something really awful - we can deal with celiac disease." Hopefully there will be more positive, in-depth stories in the news in the future.

The story is accompanied by several gluten-free recipes:

The Best in Health,
Wendy
