Article About Progress On A "celiac Pill"

Recommended Posts

Generic, do you think the pills caused your gallstones?

I read in Discover magazine that it is standard practice for a pharmaceutical company to eliminate anyone from their study who experiences adverse effects--and that they do not list those adverse effects on the published study, but list the person who pulls out of the study as "non-compliant."

I am a newly diagnosed gal with Celiac Sprue. I, as I am sure most everyone else who is first diagnosed, has been grieving the loss of a "free and spontaneous" lifestyle. Traveling to far off places has always been my dream. And the thought that I have now been stopped by this rediculous disease has been a difficult fact to digest (no pun intended). I know that I can take my own snacks, yada, yaada,yadda... but really, it still just sucks. I am too scared to eat out, and if I could actually get a chance to go out with my friends or family and order gluten-free at a place other than my own kitchen...with this added safety net...I might actually do it. I hope and pray that this will pan out, for all of us. Now that I am off my soap/cry me a river box...

My mom found a pill at a healthfood store that claims to offer exactly what these pharmaceutical companies are hoping to offer. Has anyone heard of these pills? My mother also has celiac, but isn't as safe as she should be with her diet (and has a long list of complications do to this not so well attmpted compliance. So, I am just doing some extra research to see if this, already available pill, is even a possibililty.

Anyone using this kind of pill?

Honestly, if this pill is for real, I would definitely take it every time I went out to eat. I would still eat gluten free but would want it for the cross contamination. As mentioned in the article it does not work it you eat large amounts of gluten. When we go out to eat, I ask all the questions and hope that the food is prepared the way it should be. It's a crapshoot. So far, I've been pretty lucky. It would be nice not to worry about cc!

The pills definately didn't cause the stones. (I had that same thought at the time). I had a few minor attacks prior to starting the pills. I thought it was from stress and or gas I just didn't know what it was at the time. I ate very fatty prime rib for Christmas eve dinner and that was what set off the "I think I'm dyeing gall attack". Apparently one of the stones moved down to my bile duct and got stuck.
