Advice On Giving A Speech About Celiac

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

Does your college have access to scholarly databases? Thats how i got mine. I did a speech last semester in biology about it.

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

    • I don't know for sure but if you have a emotional roller coaster it may be do to food sensitivities.  The pattern however may be difficult to figure out.  I also removed all grains and milk from my diet. I limit my fruit and fructose consumption (fructose binds with tryptophan in the gut) and don't eat processed food. That might be something you could try. Alcohol can be problematic as well as a diet too high in protein or fat.  Vegetables may be your best bet as far as a healthy nutritious diet.  I take glutamine powder as unbound glutamine is the preferred food for the cells that line the intestine. It is known to help with "leaky gut syndrome."  I think it really helps!!! Glutamine powder is gluten free and it may help repair damage to the brain blood barrier as well.  I also am experimenting with dark cocoa powder as it is rich in antioxidants and flavinoids which can help with healing and improving mood.  Another option would be to research the AIP diet. 
    • While celiac is primarily a genetic disease, there are cases of it appearing in people that have NO genetic history of it, nor the genes for it and it develops as a complete mutation caused by a trigger normally associated with some kind of shock or trauma to the immune system. There the same theory that that applies to bringing out the dormant gene for the disease applies that when the body and immune system is under shock or stress, and consuming gluten the body is easily confused and slips up identifying the gluten proteins as harmful and developing antibodies for them (more so common if you have another AI issue and the body is already under stress).....and like a kind of messed up vaccine you from then on pretty much have it....NOTE this is based off a article I read a while back and I can not quote sources or confirm my wording. PLEASE if anyone can correct this if I am wrong or messed up on my memory. 
    • Yes you are correct. Interestingly my genes in the US are thought to be more associated with RA. Which is something they thought I had prediagnosis. In the Middle and far East they are more likely to be associated with celiac and they are rare genes in Caucasians which I am according to my parents known heritage. I always caution folks not to take the gene tests as absolute proof they can't have celiac because I had one child who had positive blood and biopsy, did well on the diet, then got genes tested in young adulthood and was told they could never be celiac. Of course that resulted in her abandoning the diet. I worry but hope someday doctors will realise we still have a lot to learn about the genetics of this disease. PS While I still have some deformity in my hands my joint pain resolved after a few months on the diet.
    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
