I hope I don't offend any of the very well informed people on this here message board by this post, becuase I really do appreciate all of the info i've gotten here over the past few days.

I am looking for medical explainations of celiac disease. Detailed medical descriptions incuding:

the process of what happens after ingestion of gluten and in what order. What are the 'this always happens' things, and what are the 'may happen' things?

sure, blood tests and biopsies are used to test, but what is it all about? What causes the immune response? What causes damage to organs? What are the causes and effects that lead to the neurological problems, and cancer?

oh, and how i love to read clinical studies.

all the info here is interesting and a great start, but i need to delve more deeply into the details.

seems to me lots of you know lots of stuff. where'd you all educate yourselves?

anyone want to suggest some reading?

thanks

I would suggest getting your hands on a copy of 'Dangerous Grains' I've gotten 2 copies off of an internet auction site used and cheap and I am sure it is available in some bookstores and libararies.

I know some very knowledgeable people will be on to answer your questions more fully but essentially in sensitive people the protein gliadin in gluten containing grains acts as a systemic poison.

I'm not offended at all :) I learned everything from reading a lot of various information on celiac disease such as books, web sites, pamphlets, scientific journal articles ect. Here are some articles that may interest you:

Dangerous Grains is a good, readable book. All of the medical refs are in the back of the book. It's not very clinical in the reading, though.

This is from another celiac forum, but it should give you plenty of information to start with.

(And if you make it through all of 'em, let me know. I've only read about half so far.)

use pubmed (www.pubmed.com) and you'll have access to abstracts and some full text articles from all the common peer-revied medical journals. it'll take plenty of searching, but there's plenty in there. google will also find you some good sites, though it'll take a bit of sifting. (I'm afraid I don't have the good sites I've already found bookmarked.)

I agree with Judy in Philly--WOW!!! Perhaps we should all copy this link, paste it in word and give it to every doctor we see. They should be reading what's out there as well. Obviously (as we on this site know) gluten sensitivity is rampant and unfortunately underdiagnosed because the people that can help us (physicians) are not getting the info they need. Thank you, Debbie, for the great info.

      April 17-27, 2020   For the past few years many of you have asked us to arrange a River Boat Cruise that will allow us to visit Amsterdam's famous Keukenhof Gardens at its prime time of the blossoming of the millions of Tulips and Hyacinths - alongside the windmills of the Netherlands.  With the participation of a minimum of 20 persons we have arranged an All-Inclusive Cruise from Antwerp to Amsterdam.  This cruise will not be offered to the public until January, 2019 and always sells out quickly.   THERE WILL BE NO MONEY REQUIRED NOR COMMITMENT FROM YOU until we have all the final costs and details.  If you are at all interested check out our website for as many of the details that we have as of this time.   We need your request to be placed on a list of interested participants so we can present that number to Uniworld to show we have the sincere interest in this All-Inclusive Bob & Ruth's Gluten-free Cruise.   PLEASE CHECK OUT OUR WEBSITE FOR THE DETAILED INFORMATION THAT WE HAVE AS OF THIS TIME.   http://bobandruths.com
