Research On Celiacs

Recommended Posts

I suppose the 's' gets added because often we refer to ourselves as "Celiacs" meaning people who have Celiac Disease :)

Kalanfan, how did the paper turn out? I have a paper to write for my bio class, and I've been working on it, but was curious to know what sources you used, other than the people here :)

Well im a nursing student and we have to do a research paper on a topic of our choice. Since ive been doing the gluten free thing for a couple of months now i decided to do mine on celiacs. For my primary research i need some questions answered by people with condition so i devised a survey...it would help me greatly if you guys could fill it out.....

What age were you diagnosed with celiac's/gluten intolerance?

33

What were your most common symptoms?

anemia

What are your symptoms when you eat gluten now?

headache, stomach pain, bloating

Do you consider yourself more sensitive to gluten now that you try to avoid it?

yes

Did you or your doctor come up with the celiacs/gluten intolerance diagnosis?

my doctor, via biopsy

Do you have any other food allergies/intolerances?

yes

If yes what?

allergic to brazil nuts

Does anyone else in your family have celiacs/gluten intolerance?

brother has dermatitis herpetiformis

Do you consider the world celiac/gluten free friendly?

no

Explain.

Other than the obvious "whole" foods, it's difficult to find foods that are "safe".

Do you think we need better food labelling laws?

yes

Explain.

To make it clearer what foods are really gluten-free.

Does the world in your opinion need to be more educated about celiacs and gluten?

yes, simply because we are not diagnosed effectively.

thanx in advance for your time...
