Message from the Organizing Committee

XII International Celiac Disease Symposium 2006

November 9-11, 2006

Registration Available in Jan. 2006

Hilton New York

1335 Avenue of the Americas

New York, NY

Celiac disease will take center stage in New York City as the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University hosts the XII International Celiac Disease Symposium 2006, which will bring an unprecedented opportunity for each of you to help shape the future of celiac disease by participating in the symposium, November 9-11, 2006 at the Hilton NY Hotel, New York City. We invite you to participate in this unique and important world gathering, confident that together we can profoundly improve the lives of celiac patients around the globe.

The symposium is expected to attract healthcare industry leaders, clinicians, nutritionists, diagnostic and pharmaceutical executives, scientists, policy makers, patients and journalists and will touch on every aspect of adult and pediatric celiac disease – diagnosis, treatment, business development, science and public policy and has emerged as the single most important forum for bringing together the players who will determine the nature of celiac disease and its impact on patients around the globe.

Over the next few months, you'll find sessions, speakers, workshops, registration, sponsorship opportunities, exhibiting information, descriptions of the events and activities, housing and on our lineup of spectacular receptions in New York City online at www.celiacdiseasecenter.org. We believe this is by far the richest program and the most compelling showcase for celiac disease ever hosted.

Most importantly, it's the energy and intelligence of our speakers, exhibitors and attendees that we're counting on to bring this program to life. We look forward to seeing you there!

With best wishes,

2006 Organizing Committee

I heard about it last year and got the notice in the mail a few weeks ago. In my own city--and it starts on a Thursday... and I'm in school for 2 of the 3 days. I'm crushed.

If anyone goes, tell me about it. It's basically the biggest conference that exists... takes place around the world... Ireland last year.

It's mainly that my SCHOOL wouldn't let me off from school--I'll undoubtedly have many tests and they wouldn't consider it a legitimate excuse. People are rarely absent and you can only miss school for a school-related issue (i.e. debate team leaving early for an away tournament).

I did it to keep the topic at the view new posts part for the rest of the time before the early regiestration dates go out so new people on the site would see this, and i didn't want to start a new topic cause we already had one going.

Bumping this up....so who is going?

I believe that I am going! I think Jillian (jkmunchkin) said she might go, also. Who else? I'd love to meet up with others.

I'm also going to see Dr. Leo Galland in NYC while I'm there....he specializes in integrative medicine and leaky gut/food intolerances. Since I'm having so many food issues, I figured I'd see him and do the Celiac conference while I'm there. But I can't partake in all the gluten free delights at the conference though...booo.

Write back if you are going so we can get together!

    • I myself also have EOE and Celiac. Before my diagnoses I was getting bread and meat stuck in my esophogus. It wouldn’t pass. It got so bad when I ate a ribeye. It sat in the esophogus for 4 hours. Eventually I was able to vomit it up. It was followed by blood. I then went for a biopsy a month later and was diagnosed. I cut out most of the gluten out of my diet. But I also had to go see an allergy doctor and I have a soy and nut allergy. He explained that the restriction in the esophogus is a delayed reaction to either the soy, gluten, or nuts. So I try to avoid those foods as much as possible. I carry an epi pen with me when I go out to eat. 
    • My biopsy showed Villi damage in the small intestine. It was followed up with blood work. My GI was frustrated with me when I started questioning her. She couldn’t even explain the results to me. She just circled positive and left me hanging. Can anybody explain how my results look? Am I definitely positive?

    • My daughter was diagnosed with celiac in 2014.    She never had a problem with gluten, and she is still a silent celiac.  But she was formally diagnosed with blood test and biopsy.   So, having no "problems" with gluten does not necessarily mean you are not celiac. I too, did not want to accept that my daughter has celiac, and we did a DNA testing, and found that she does carry one of the celiac genes.   So, if you do not want to accept celiac (or just very curious), you can get a dna test to see if you have one of these genes.   I was told that people without one of those celiac genes can not have celiac.
    • Download the app "Find Me gluten-free". It was a life saver when I went on a road trip. You can scan the area you are in for all of the nearest safe restaurants. I only go to the ones labeled "Celiac Friendly" , but that's up to you. Make sure you read the reviews and look at the ratings.  Majority of popular restaurants are not safe. I have found some local restaurants that I enjoy, so ask around in your community. I usually feel safe eating at Chipolte, because I watch them prepare everything right in front of me. If you tell them you have a gluten allergy they will wash their hands, change their gloves, change out the spoons for all of the ingredients you want, and get new bins of cheese. Just make sure you watch the whole time.  I have also eaten at Five Guys several times. Their fries are usually fried in peanut oil and do not have any coating, so if they change their gloves they should be okay. I usually get a hamburger on a lettuce wrap instead of a bun and ask them to keep it separate as they make it. Just like with Chipolte, you can watch everything they do. I always stand right by the counter and watch them make my food to look out for possible cross contamination.  They usually are very careful, but you do have to be very aware and make a decision based on how conscious the workers seem. Mellow Mushrooms also seem to be in many states. All of the locations I have been to have had gluten free options and dedicated kitchen space.  These are some of the restaurants that work for me, but it is different for every person and every circumstance. The most important thing is to be safe. Always ask a lot of questions. I have decided not to eat at places before because of the way a waiter has answered a question about their procedures to reduce cross contamination.  I will also skip out on eating out if the place is busy. No matter how careful they say they will be a kitchen is a busy place. If the restaurant is packed it's better to be safe and not risk it.  I hope you find some places to eat out that work for you, but the truth is a lot of the time you will just need to bring your own food or eat at home. Your health is more important than eating out.  It gets easier and you will learn what is safe and what works. Good luck!
    • Oh, I missed the part about Canadian candy.  Maybe you can buy some American candy on line - then you would know it's safe. Can you buy American candy on Amazon?  I buy everything on Amazon! Can you call the Hershey's in Canada and ask them?  Pick your favorite candy or two and research it?  Just a thought....
