Hmmm,  i liked the first part of the article about symptoms of gluten intolerance.  But advising people to start the gluten-free diet without testing for celiac disease is bad advice IMHO.

 

Also, I think this statement is false:

 

Please note that gluten is a very large protein and it can take months and even years to clear from your system

 

That doesn't sound true to me.  She is basically saying people are walking around with donuts and pizza in their guts years after eating them.  Sounds slightly off kilter to me.  At some point you would think people wouldn't want to eat any more donuts, pizza or bread is this were true. Even non-celiacs with guts full of donuts would be uncomfortable.  Maybe that's what happened to the Michelin man? :)

 

.......

.......

 

And this one, while sensational, is something I would much rather see a reference for, than take on good faith.

 

An article published in 2001 states that for those with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity eating gluten just once a month increased the relative risk of death by 600%.

 

 

I ate gluten for years before starting the gluten-free diet.  By that logic, I should have croaked many years ago.  Maybe logic isn't the appropriate word to describe her assertion though.

 

Otherwise she has the right idea, and probably plans to make lots of money on it.  I guess you can consider me skeptical of her motives and her article.

yeah agreed; after further reading, I didnt agree on the testing side of it either :(

The article is about gluten sensitivity not Celiac--- and as you likely know --- most Celiac testing is inaccurate anyway.  Which is why it's such a HUGE problem and many people are UNDER diagnosed.  I take gluten sensitivity very seriously and I have my patients who are sensitive to avoid it at all cost.  So as far as I am concerned it's the same treatment. I certainly test my patients for Celiac and as of yet no one has come up positive however almost 100% of my patients are gluten intolerant.

Actually it not false.  I see patients who have been gluten-free for months to years and their markers for gluten sensitivity are still very high.  And of course their guts are still a mess and leaky.  When I say 'clear' I mean to clear the antibodies.  I can certainly send you a list of references.

Wow that's really disappointing!  I suffer from an autoimmune disease and gluten played a huge role in that.  I no longer have a thyroid and if my writing can prevent even one person from having to go through what I went through --- I have been successful.  Thankfully this article has reached millions and i have been able to help a lot of people.  MY goal is to educate and prevent others from ever being in my shoes.

    • Hey All, I was wondering if anyone has tried gluten free pizza? I'm specifically talking about the store bought kind. I'm looking for a cheat meal - I've been eating mainly non processed fresh food but I need a little something to stay sane every now and then. I'm from New York so i'd say I have a pretty high standard of pizza lol. Are there any good frozen ones that are worth eating? I don't think i've ever eaten a frozen pizza in my life but I don't particularly have the time right now to make my own.  Also while I'm posting I figure i'll ask. I'm going to this event with my friend at her work. It's like a dinner party. How do I navigate this situation food wise? Should I just eat at home and get drinks there or plan to eat there but take snacks just in case nothing seems safe?  Thanks guys!
    • Hi Dalek, JMG has it right, any food with wheat, rye or barley is a gluten containing food.  In addition, watch out for malt, which is sometimes made from barley.  That includes the malt in beers.
    • Interesting!! I'm going to share that with her dr. I'll have to look into the gluten sensitivity more myself, the main reason we started testing is due to poor growth. As I learned more, I've seen several symptoms that could be explained by celiac. I like feeling informed so I'll know what to talk to the dr about or ask about. I think those are the results we are waiting for still, I couldn't remember the name.
    • Call your doctor's office and ask them to relay your request to the doctor to amend the test request, they should be able to sort it without an additional meeting and delay. Worth a try anyway I think the Biocard tests TTG IGA and it may give you an indication. Do post your results here as I'm sure others will be interested in its effectiveness. If it's negative however remember that there are several celiac tests for a reason. Some test on one, some on another etc... However my guess is your doctor will dismiss them and want their own testing. That's the usual experience. 
    • Waiting for the EMA, I bet.  Keep advocating! this is interesting.  If celiac disease is excluded, she might still have a gluten sensitivity.  There just is not specific test for that. http://theglutensummittranscripts.s3.amazonaws.com/Dr_Umberto_Volta.pdf
