Petition for Gluten-Free Labeling on White House Website - Celiac.com

Recommended Posts

I agree...just find it crazy that the law hasn't been finalized after four years. Like I said...this was one very small step forward....I also felt strongly as a community we shouldn't let this thing fall short of the target.


-Lisa

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)

From my experience trying to write what became HIPAA, it takes a long time getting these "fringe" things passed. Even when you can get legislators excited about a bill, it gets re-worked and, 15 years later, becomes a law that resembles, but is not really, what you wanted. In the case of HIPAA, I wanted more restrictive laws like Kansas had at the time. anyway...that is off-topic. The point being, on this gluten-free legislation, we are ahead of a lot of health related laws. Not sure about food safety laws. This is a bit of a mess because - is it health care or is it food safety/FDA?

We will see...

That's great that we got the full 25K signatures! :D Maybe they will get it done finally.


Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul
