Article On Celiac In Marie Claire!

This may have already posted on here, but I was just flipping through the magazine and was so excited when I saw this article that I wanted to let everyone know.

It's in the February issue of Marie Claire, pgs. 166 -167.

There is a picture of a (naked) girl holding a huge roll infront of her (sorry guys you see nothing and the roll isn't exactly a sexy Playboy type pose), with the title "The Hidden Reason You Feel Bloated." I saw this and thought, no way this can't be an article on Celiac in a national, top fashion magazine... but it is!!

I wouldn't run out to get a copy. You're not gonna read anything new. It was mostly accurate. For some reason the writer listed how much the blood tests cost, which if you have health insurance it costs just your copay at the doctor. The way it was written made it seem like this blood test is not covered by insurance. Also she briefly mentioned having the genes for celiac but possibly never getting it; but then incorrectly said but if you don't have the genes it is unlikely that you will develop celiac. Correct me if I'm wrong, but if you don't have the either the IQA or IQ8 gene for celiac there is no possibility you will develop it.

With the exception of these minor points, it was a good overview of celiac. More than anything I think it's just great awareness to have an article on celiac in such a popular magazine.

There are some biopsy proven Celiacs who don't carry either the DQ2 or D8 gene. They have not yet identified all of the genes associated with celiac.

I suspect that the "biopsy proven Celiacs who don't carry either the DQ2 or D8 gene" may well have intestinal damage caused by casein. I know I have the intestinal damage, I have food intolerances by the dozen and I do not have Celiac genes - unless I have some Celiac gene that they haven't found yet. Claire

Claire,

Maybe you have DQ1. I think those Celiacs without DQ2 or DQ8 have DQ1 in common. From what I've read if there were another Celiac gene identified in the future it would likely be that one.

I know I have the intestinal damage, I have food intolerances by the dozen and I do not have Celiac genes - unless I have some Celiac gene that they haven't found yet. Claire

Also keep in mind that you obviously have a leaky gut but may have intact villi. Those with flattened villi have Celiac. Those with a leaky gut do not necessarily have damaged villi....like a Celiac would. So basically, having numerous food intolerances doesnt mean that you have villi damage.

I believe a few months back there was an article on celiac in Glamour (or similar) - it was great to see it in a national magazine. I'll have to dig to find the actual article and magazine...

    • No anti-sm(lupus)? Yes, anti dsDNA is for SLE(lupus). No ENA panel,anti-RNP, anti-SS-A, anti-SS-B, anti histone, scl-70, etc? I'd ask for a referral, if you feel that there is something going on. I think that would be a logical step because of the positive ANA and lack of investigation. 1:640 is definitely positive. 
    • My MCH is always high too. Have some other oddities but doc always say labs are great as well. I dont think they ever really bother with the MCH. I'm also in testing and showed negative on the same ones you did. My IGA is fine though. As far as the other tests, maybe your girls GI can order or you could try your primary. 
    • Hi there!   I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago.  Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods.  High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction.  Here's a helpful site:   https://www.histamineintolerance.org.uk/about/the-food-diary/the-food-list/ I don't drink orange juice because because of the hives and stomach upset I get from it, and also because I'm type two diabetic and my system can't handle all the sugars in it.  High glucose contributes to inflammation. I also avoid things with added flavors and scents because they often contain sulfur components like sulfites or sulfates.  Corn products are often processed with sulfuric acid.  Some Celiacs, like me, develop a sulfite sensitivity.  Here's a helpful site:  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/celiac-disease-and-sulfite-intolerance/ Garlic and onions are high in sulfites.  People who can't tolerate foods high in sulfites are often deficient in a trace mineral, molybdenum.  Molybdenum is also involved in blood production.  Here's another site:  http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=128 So, there's not always a simple answer.  I'm leary of processed foods because you don't really know how they're processed and what really goes into them.  I'd rather stick to fresh foods.  Hope this helps.
    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
