Celiac Presentation In Sandy, Utah
0

5 posts in this topic

Hi there :) I am doing a presentation on Celiac Disease at the Good Earth Natural Foods store in Sandy on Monday night. I know this forum was so much help to me when I was first diagnosed (and still is when I have questions) and I thought I would announce this here. Hopefully, I will be able to add to your understanding. (Which I know is vast if you spend much time here ;) )

I'm currently a student at the University of Utah who is studying Health Promotion & Education. I'm also someone with Celiac Disease who has a mad fascination with it ;) I've read at least 50 peer reviewed medical journal articles on the topic, read many books, done numerous presentations on the disease (in my classes) and have learned a lot of medical information about our disease and what happens - or how likely things are to happen.

Oh, and I know this is going to be at a natural foods store, but I promise not to tell you to eat spelt ;)

I hope that someone from this forum will come! :)

I think it's really neat that you're doing a presentation of celiac. Utah is a little too far for me to go to the presentation. Maybe you could post your slides or outline or whatever you're using. I bet it would be really helpful for newbies. Good luck!

Thanks for your encouragement! :) I need to get more involved in this board again. I miss having all of these great people to talk to who actually know what I'm talking about ;)

Once this semester is over (mid December) I'll come back to the board more often and try and make myself useful ;) I really have learned so much about celiac. It's kind of wild for an OCD person like myself to have (nearly) full access to medical journals. But hey, at least I'm learning! ;)

Just hope someone comes to the presentation!

    • Ken, I have the same thing. Did you ever find a reason or solution? I'm tired of shampoos and creams that only work short term. My problem cropped up after I had gone gluten-free. Thanks!
    • Hi, I recently was tested (blood) and got a positive for celiac disease. I'm 31 and have had 3 kids, and no longer have the urge to urinate. I birthed all of my children naturally, no c-sections, no surgeries. I thought perhaps there was some trauma during the birth and attributed it to that. But have come across a few things online saying that bladder problems can be related to celiac disease? I have been to a few doctors for this problem, including a very confused urologist (I asked him about my stomach bloating issue with pictures of it- before having any clue it was from celiac!) and he wanted to run some tests but I have not been back. I had multiple (or perhaps just one very bad) urinary infections which would not go away for about 6 months. The last round of harder antibiotics finally killed it off. Has anyone else had this problem? I have not met with a GI yet to ask, I'm super poor right now! hah.
    • You're right on the extremes, I'm sitting in a gluten-free food festival right now and still unsure if to eat anything which I guess means I've hit the extreme end of the scale. Seem to be noticing the recovery pattern over the course of 6 weeks or so after a gluten hit. Will be very interesting to see what the blood test readings come out like when I eventually get them done again. And thanks for the good wishes
    • Your getting plenty of proteins for once and I would drop the L-glutamine supplement what brand is it? Paleo Protein as in the brand? They were not gluten free last I checked, I got sick from it 2 years ago or so when they changed to a non dedicated facility.
    • Very interesting. However, my positive on the DGP test is on the combined assay. When separated into IGA and IGG they are within normal range. Twice the IGA was a point or two above normal range, which can be easily disregarded per University of Chicago.  Much of the research done on NCGS is showing activation of cells which are different then in celiac. Placing it still in a gluten related illness spectrum, but an entirely different kind of mode of transport, if you will, then celiac disease. Odd, because I am pretty sure I read that 1st degree relatives of celiacs have a higher prevalence of NCGS suggesting it is, in part, that they are related. But I cannot recall where I read that.  I think my specialist doc is following the right track given that all of this began at the tail end of a 6 week challenge in 2015/16 and I have an increase in IELs.  which, as I've stated before, is a very non-specific finding however. Symptoms continued On a gluten free diet for me months after.  however I was only on it for that 3 months after they found some inflammation. So maybe I didn't give it long enough.  Or like I said, maybe it's something else. We shall see!
