Celiac article in the Roanoke, Va., newspaper. And there's actually going to be a celiac cooking class here.

My only beef (pun intended) is that one person featured believes she has to avoid grain-fed meat. The author also slipped and used glucose instead of gluten in one place.

Well, on the bright side it is at least a newspaper article that alot of people might see and read and find out they also may have this...... if nothing else all those millions of hypocondriacs appearing at their doctors offices will serve to also educate the doctors and hopefully will find a few that have been undiagnosed.......

On the other hand the couple of errors in knowledge and spelling hopefully will be quickly forgotten, heck here in Nebraska non-grain fed beef is easy to get, but I cant afford it will be starting my own little meat factory soon however (I like to know what my food is eating, my appologies to any vegatarians out there reading this)

It also goes to show how much miss "grass fed beef" knows about what her food is eating...... the "grain" 90% of the commercial beef is eating is CORN ground up and mixed with ground up hay, yes a few essential vitamins and minerals are also added to the mix but for the most part its corn and hay. Not to mention the "grass fed" beef she tries so hard to locate is also given the same minerals and viatmins as the grain fed and some even give them corn to "fatten" them up prior to taking their final ride to your freezer... if only she knew :huh:

I wrote a nice note to the writer thanking her. She's was mortified that glucose got in and admitted that she mixes the two up in her head, even though she plainly knows the difference.

The woman who avoids grain-fed beef was actually one of the first people to help me after I was diagnosed. She works at the local health food store and I was so relieved to find somebody with celiac there. She was the first person to tell me I couldn't eat spelt bread.

    For what it's worth, I've noticed that if it's just iodine I will not get any other symptoms. In addition to the rash, I typically get GI symptoms, fatigue, and sometimes joint swelling when I ingest gluten. I don't typically eat seafood or stuff with lots of iodized salt, but sometimes I do on special occasions knowing that there will be some relatively minor consequences. Typically this is because I am traveling - canned tuna, salty snacks, jerky etc. are often the only nutritionally bala
    While a Celiac reaction requires actual consumption of gluten, I take no risks.  Sunscreen might melt into my mouth a long bike trip or I could bite a nail.   I use CeraVe lotion for my face.  In winter, I use their heavier cream.  I also use the Equate “CeraVe” version by Walmart which is made in Canada.  I use a lot of sunscreen.  I buy Equate which does not contain gluten, is recommended by Consumer reports and is inexpensive.  Do not use CeraVe sunscreen.  For some reason they changed t
I get those same bumps on the sides of my fingers sometimes. Always wondered what they were.
