In the March 26th issue of the First Magazine on page 17 there is a short blip about Celiac Disease. The article is entitled "What's Draining Your Energy." It asks questions regarding several other problems but where it talks about Celiac it says:

I struggle with diarrhea, gas or abdominal pain almost daily.

I have signs of anemia (breathlessness/ weakness)

Meds don't help my GI disease

"One in every 100 people has this illness, making it one of the most inherited disorders in America says Peter Green, M.D. author of Celiac Disease, a Hidden Epidemic. The problem: a misfiring immune system that attacks gluten ( a protein found in wheat), causing absorption problems. To confirm, as for the anit-tissue transglutaminase test (Anti -tTG).

Remedy: Stay gluten free Avoiding gluten will alleviate symptoms, And sidestepping it is now easier since there's been an 88 percent increase in gluten-free foods in the past year. But beware of surprising gluten sources like medications and lipsticks, cautions Dr. Green. For information, including products to avoid, visit AmericanCelieac.org.
