  3. Good article, Scott. Nutrients are added to wheat flour. If your diet is deficient in them the problem is compounded by a GFD, so a diet of processed foods without wheat could lead to vitamin deficiencies. That does not mean wheat is good for you.
  4. Hi Scott, Thank you for your response. I appreciate it. I did go for a blood draw today, and will be meeting with a nutritionist to ensure 100% gluten-free diet. Thank you for the article links too! Beth
  5. To be honest, I don't think he cares enough to be interested in doing anything about it.
  6. Sorry not to answer your specific questions, but I do want to try to help. Of course, going gluten-free is crucial, which it sounds like you already know. Hopefully you understand the details of a 100% gluten-free diet. I was wondering if your doctor did a blood test for vitamin &...
  7. The new protocol is that if someone scores 10x the celiac disease level, then they can be diagnosed with the blood test alone, however, not all doctors are following this. I would just make sure that she's not cheating on her diet, as that can happen with teenagers. My daughter is a perfect example...
  8. Have you increased your fiber intake recently? Any new seeds in your diet? Eating more nuts? Your symptoms are exactly the same I got when I increased my fiber intake.
  9. I'm newly diagnosed with Celiac Disease, after endoscopy to check on some severe GI issues I was having. After reading more about this disease, I'm seeing a link for recurrent miscarriages. I had two miscarriages this past year with no explanation from doctors (prior to being diagnosed). I'm wondering...
  10. By the way, this is a new and very interesting article on this topic: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/joim.13120
  11. My oven temperature was wildly fluctuating, mostly on the hot side. I couldn't safely bake anything anymore, most everything got overdone on the outside, raw or gooey on the inside. That forced me to get a new oven...finally! The old was was about 34 years old. It was cheaper to replace it than...
  12. I've been thinking about my grandmother, who lived to 99. She obviously had a celiac gene to give to my mother. I'm not aware that she had any issues similar to my mother, but she did have severe arthritis from at least 80 onwards, perhaps longer. She did eat gluten, but perhaps not a lot of it...
  13. Celiac.com 01/20/2021 - We get a lot of questions about sports drinks, especially about whether sports drinks are gluten-free, and if so, which ones. Most sports hydration drinks are made with water...
  14. Hi everyone so.......... This is where I am at now, I have had more blood tests but not heard anything back yet. I have had a telephone call with the dietician as our current lockdown restrictions won't allow use to go into a doctors surgery or hospital. She has said there is a lot of confusion...
  15. You may want to turn him on to GliadinX. It isn't designed for his situation, but it is better than nothing at all, and could possibly be very helpful.
  16. I've not seen specific studies on this, however, there have been many stories posted by celiacs on this forum who ended up in the emergency room and were dehydrated and were low on electrolytes. My brother had this happen a few times. I would venture to say that it probably has a lot to do...
  17. We've done some articles on celiacs and covid-19: https://www.celiac.com/search/?q=covid-19&type=cms_records2&updated_after=any&sortby=newest&search_in=titles and @trents is correct about there not being any documented extra risks for celiacs. There are, however, possibly...
  18. It looks amazing. I'm in Santa Rosa, CA and we don't, as far as I know, have a dedicated gluten-free restaurant here.
  19. I do think now would be good timing for anyone who ever dreamed of opening a café or restaurant. Many restaurants have gone under due to the pandemic, and this creates opportunity for those interested to get great deals on leases, and buying existing businesses that might be for sale or have gone ...
  20. I agree that cross-contamination, bad or no gluten-free training of restaurant staff, as well as mistakes like the one you mentioned, are common in restaurants, even ones that have a gluten-free menu (which can give most celiacs a false sense of security). A couple of years ago I started taking...
  21. I will ask for those today when I talk to the gastro. I looked for them previously and couldn't find them. All I remember, is the gastro saying his numbers were well over 100 and some of the highest he had seen.
  22. We've done many articles on this, but the issue is that the research is relatively new, and ongoing. It will take years to get a standardized test to diagnose it, but they already have some good test candidates: More articles on this topic are at: https://www.celiac.com/search...
  23. If possible can you get hold of the the original blood test results and share them?
  24. Thanks for the response! We started to believe he was a silent celiac too. Our gastro did tell us to expect the longer he was guten free, the greater the reaction to gluten would become over time. It is the sheer lack of genetics that has us all so baffled. I had not heard about other antibody triggers...
  25. I've tried. He's a very social person who dines out frequently and it's clear to me that he has decided that is more important to him than enduring the health risks posed by continuing to consume gluten. In addition, I think he is largely asymptomatic.
