  1. More and more, people are adopting a gluten-free diet due to perceived health and weight-loss benefits.

  3. Cerebellar ataxia with sensory ganglionopathy (SG) is a disabling combination of neurological dysfunction that usually occurs as part of certain hereditary ataxias. However, some patients present this combination with no apparent genetic cause. A team of researchers recently set out to if autoimmunity might have a role to play in SG. The team reviewed records of all patients that have been referred to the Sheffield Ataxia Centre who had neurophysiological and imaging data suggestive of SG and cerebellar ataxia respectively.

  4. Shannon Aldridge of Canton, Georgia, created her gluten-free dessert, biscuit and pizza mix company, Abundtant Love, after her husband was diagnosed with celiac disease.

  5. In Canada, even people with Celiac disease don't really think of it as a disease, so it's no surprise the more subjective gluten "intolerance", which food marketers have used to create a $5 billion industry south of the ... The data were collected about a decade ago, before the gluten-free fad took off. View the full article
  6. This delicious central Italian-style soup will warm your heart and please your hungriest eaters. To you and me, it may be Tuscan Soup, but to the sonorous, lyrical Italians, it is known as Zuppa Toscana. Whatever language you speak, it means a warm, satisfying and delicious meal.

  9. "Wheat dust" from fields isn't wheat flour. Wheat kernels in the field are very stable, and should not produce dust. I suppose if the bee hives were very near a flour mill there could be contamination. Please do post any test results, but I suspect that honey is nothing that celiacs need to worry about. Actually another interesting test would be testing wheat germ oil for gluten (the oil may be gluten-free, but I've not seen tests on it).
  10. The Rockford Area Celiac Support Group is meeting Wednesday, January 31st, 2018, at 6:30 pm at OSF St. Anthony's Hospital in the Foundation Room which is on the lower level near the Cafeteria. The speaker will be teaching us about essential oils.
  11. Soon-to-be member of the British royal family has just jumped into our gluten-free celebrity of the month pool. Here's the story about how ditching gluten made her skin healthier and more radiant. As an American, I almost never get excited about British royalty, or soon-to-be royalty. Chatter about William and Kate? Yawn. Charles and Camilla? Double yawn. Royal babies? Pshaw. I'd rather watch paint dry... View the full article
  12. Such a diet is also unlikely to provide any benefits. “There's no reason for someone who feels well to start a gluten-free diet to promote wellness,” said Dr. Benjamin Lebwohl, director of clinical research at the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University. “It is not an intrinsically wellness-promoting diet.”.

  13. Jared has been gluten-free for 9 years, since being diagnosed with celiac disease at age 10. Transitioning to a gluten-free diet was challenging at first, but he credits it with pushing him to become a good cook.

  14. Gluten-free, food allergies and celiac disease have reached the media in the form of jokes and ridicule. This is a serious development because the media influences viewer's day-today reactions to various social situations. In many ways, TV becomes a role model for social interactions. DeVault (1991) says that "an enormous body of science, literature and even humor tells us how a middle-class man and woman might 'do' family life" (p. 16). This is the fundamental reason why the media jabs about gluten-free and food allergies are so impactful. What we see on TV, we emulate in life. If 'doing gluten free' is something to be ridiculed, as with the examples below, then those of us with food allergies need to unite our voices to be heard in public forums to change this practice.

  15. Being a baker, there was a time that the words gluten-free rang in my ears like the screech of nails on a chalkboard. In the early 2000s, the concept of gluten sensitivity was just entering mainstream culture. No one really knew what celiac disease was, and to many, the concept of gluten-free anything was ...
