A Very Good Dvd On celiac disease/gluten

6 posts in this topic

I just ordered this DVD of a recent (last summer) seminar on Celiac disease and gluten sensitivity. It answered a lot of questions I had, plus it pointed out some rather frightening statistics I had not read before. The lecture puts together a lot of studies and really tells us where we stand with this. If you are wondering if you are "merely" gluten sensitive (perhaps lacking the celiac gene) whether or not it is harmful to eat some gluten, or whether you MUST know if you actually have/had celiac disease, if damage can be done to non-celiacs, etc, then this lecture will answer a lot of your concerns. The doctor also discusses testing and problems with the medical profession regarding celiac disease etc. There is also a segment from a women who is concerned with the nutrtitional aspects of dealing with celiac disease. I'm passing this DVD around to all my family members and I felt it was worth the $$$. After I ordered it, it arrived within about 2 days!

I sure wish I could locate a doctor around here to has this particular doctor's interest and knowledge on the subject! I really do recommend this to everyone.

I received my DVD a few days ago and just got to watch it today.

IT IS AMAZING! OMG! THE WAY THAT DOCTOR DESCRIBES THINGS MAKES IT SOOOO MUCH CLEARER AND EASIER TO UNDERSTAND!!!!!

I HIGHLY recommend getting this DVD, not only for further understanding ourselves, but to better explain it to our families, etc.

I give it a 9 out of 10!

Thanks for the link Carole!

The woman that wrote the cookbook and "co-stared" in the DVD, Susan Vess runs the Celiac support group that I go to, its at the whole foods in wheaton Illinois. She is very nice, and extremely knowledgeable.

Thanks for providing the link to this website, I also just ordered the DVD! I really need it to clue people in my family in, they think I am overreacting. Plus, my 15-year old daughter keeps saying when I tell her I believe she needs to be gluten-free, "Mom, I believe you that I might be gluten intolerant, so what, I don't care, I refuse to give up bread, and you can't make me!" If she sees the DVD, maybe she will change her mind (I can hope, can't I?).

    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
    • LilyR, jmg has given you good resources/links. I used to have constant issues with ear infections that went away when I went gluten free. And recurrent bronchitis they I never have now. NCGS can cause low grade inflammation that you don't realize at the time . .. till you stop eating gluten. That said have you been checked for a UTI infection.  It is not uncommon to have low grade fevers when you have one. My friend at work recently had a bad spell of health and the only symptom she complained about before coming down with a bird flu virus was a low grade persistent fever (not for a few months but for a few years). The last time I had bronchitis before it became pneumonia I had a low grade fever in the few months before my pneumonia diagnosis. Keep looking is my advice to you.  Low grade fevers are fighting off an infection . .  sometimes we don't know why until other symptom's present themselves. I do know that when I went gluten free most of my chronic health issues got better.  I can only assume it (gluten) was triggering inflammation in my body. I hope you find out what is the cause of your fever and that being gluten free helps it. ****** this is not medical advice just some of the ways going gluten free helped me and some possible other causes of a low grade fever that have happened to myself or others that I know of. posterboy,
    • "If the biopsy is negative, then is there another test that can be done to make sure I really don't have celiac? " Yes, we can do a genetic testing for the celiac gene, I think it is the DQ2 and DQ8 gene, and maybe one other.   If you don't have one of these genes, I was told that you can not have Celiac.   See if your insurance will pay for one of this test.   If not, I think you can pay out of pocket for about $300.
