Advice On Giving A Speech About Celiac
0

9 posts in this topic

I wasn't really sure where to put this post so if it's in the wrong place, I'm sorry. I'm taking a speech class in college and we have to do an informative speech, I've chosen celiac disease as my topic(I was diagnosed a year ago). I am having some trouble finding articles written by professionals (like a article written by a doctor) I need statistics, expert testimony, and a story to really capture peoples attention. I have three main points in my speech which are 1.Symptoms/Effects on the body 2. Diagnoses/Misdiagnoses 3.Treatment/Gluten Free Lifestyle. I could talk about celiac disease all day but I have to have sources to back up my facts whether its from online or a magazine or journal. I'm also having trouble coming up with a catchy title for my speech. I'm going to bake some gluten-free cookies to bring to class as my "visual aid". If anyone has any advice or thoughts on this I'd love to hear it

google articles written by Dr. Alessio Fasano, Dr. Peter Green, Dr. Joseph Murray, Dr. Stephano Guandalini 

Those are the celiac doctors I'd  quote from in my speech.

 

Dieticians Shelley Case and Tricia Thompson have websites with info too.

 

Also, search PubMed

And maybe end it with

 

"I don't know if you saw the movie "Lorenzo's Oil".   I'm dealing with a genetic disease that is infinitely better than the rare genetic disease Lorenzo had, or thousands of other inherited or autoimmune diseases.  

 

Celiacs  control their disease by what they eat, by thinking about what they stick in their mouth, and by religiously checking every single ingredient on every box, bag, can they buy at the grocery store.

 

For that, I'm thankful.  Celiac Disease makes me weird to you, because I won't eat at parties or events, but I'm not crippled, just different."

Google scholar. You could spend an eternity finding research papers about celiac disease on there, and you always have access to abstracts even if you don't have access to the full article, and that's all you really need because they tell you the imporant part of what they've found anyways.

Not always. I've read articles where they have a short two sentence abstract and i've had to go into it to find the actual information.

All great ideas, I found a few things through our school database but there wasn't really a whole lot on just celiac, most of the articles had to do with celiac and its effects on a another disease. It's coming along though, I don't have to give my speech until march 19th so i've got plenty of time to edit and make it better. Now im trying to decide whether to make gluten-free brownies or gluten-free cookies to bring

    • Caro..............monitoring only the TSH to gauge thyroid function is what endo's do who don' t do a good job of managing thyroid disease.  They should do the full panel and check the actual thyroid hormone numbers.........T3 and T4. The importance of the TSH comes second to hormone levels. In order to track how severely the thyroid is under attack, you need to track antibody levels.......not the TSH. I did not stay with endocrinologists because I found they did not do a very good job and found much greater help and results with a functional medicine MD.  You should not have a goiter if your thyroid is functioning well and your TSH is "normal".  Maybe they should do a full panel? Going gluten free can have a profound affect for the better on thyroid function and that is something that is becoming more and more accepted today.  Ask most people with Celiac and thyroid disease and they will tell you that. My thyroid never functioned well or was under control under after I discovered I had Celiac and went gluten free.  It was the only way I got my antibody numbers back down close to normal and they were around 1200 when it was diagnosed with Celiac.  I was diagnosed with Hashi's long before the Celiac diagnosis.  I am not sure Vitamin D has anything to do with thyroid antibodies but who knows?  Maybe it does have an affect for the better. It is really hard to get Vitmain D levels up, depending on where you live. Mine are going up, slowly, even after 12 years gluten-free but I live in the Northeast in the US and we don't have sun levels like they do in the South.  I take 5,000 IU daily and that is a safe level to take, believe it or not.  I get no sun on my job so the large dose it is! Having Celiac Disease should not stop you from being able to travel, especially S. America. I travel, although I do agree that some countries might be very difficult to be gluten free in. You can be a foodie and travel with Celiac so no worries on that front. You may not be able to sample from someone else's plate, unless they are eating gluten-free too but I have had awesome experiences with food when traveling so you can too!
    • I don't know what you drank or where.... so here are a few thoughts. - sure, a dive bar might have dirty glasses and serve a cocktail in a beer glass?  But a nice reminder place, with a dishwasher, should be fine.  If it's a sketchy place, Stick to wine, then it's served in wine glasses that aren't used for beer or bottled ciders in the bottle.   - ciders on tap might, just a slight chance, have an issue.  Because of beer on tap, mixed up lines, etc. - you may have a problem with alcohol - you may have issues with The  high sugar content of the drink.  I know I have similar issues if I drink serveral ciders of extra sugary brands - are you positive it was a gluten-free drink?  Not this " redds Apple" pretending to be a cider - it's beer with apple flavor.  Or one of those " gluten removed " beers?  
    • Hi Stephanie, I'm also from the UK, I've found this site more helpful than anything we have!  As already mentioned above, in my experience it could depend on what and where you were drinking. Gluten free food and drink isn't always (not usually) 100% gluten free as you may know, maybe you have become more sensitive to even a trace of gluten that is probably in gluten free food/drink. Is it possible you have a problem with corn, particularly high fructose corn syrup that is in a lot of alcoholic drinks? This was a big problem for me and the only alcoholic drinks I can tolerate are William Chase vodka and gin. I contacted the company last year and all their drinks are 100% gluten and corn free, made the old fashioned way with no additives, so maybe try their products if you like the occasional drink and see how you get on. If you drink out, not many pubs sell their products but I know Wetherspoons do and smaller wine bars may too. l was never a spirit drinker but I must say their products are absolutely lovely! Very easy on a compromised gut too considering it's alcohol. I second the suggestion on seeing a natural health practitioner. I've recently started seeing a medical herbalist, as I've got nowhere with my now many food intolerances since going gluten free last year and I've noticed a difference in my health already. 
    • Sorry for the very late reply and thanks for the replies, I didn't get a notification of any. In case anyone else comes across this and has been wondering the same as I was, I did try a vegetable broth and I did react to it in the same way as if I'd eaten the vegetables.  As for the candida, I've been using coconut oil and am seeing a medical herbalist for this and leaky gut. It's only been a few weeks but I've noticed an improvement all round.
    • What did you drink and where did you drink it?   NOTE if you drink something at a bar using their glasses your asking for trouble BEER IS EVERYWHERE in most bars and a CC hell.   If it was at home and a non grain based liqour then I would be really concerned that it might just be alcohol. I personally can not really drink much of anything any more. I love rum, and I cook with it sometimes in sautes. I also have rum extract/butter rum extract/and rum emulsion I use in shakes, homemade keto pudding/ mixed into dishes. and even add some to drink to give it a rum flavor lol.
