I was on the phone with my folks and my mom mentioned that the White House pastry chef of long-term was on the Today show recently mentioning about Bill Clinton's wheat allergy. I did not catch it myself and am not getting anywhere online with it.

Does anyone else know more about this?

Wow. That would be something, huh? For a long time he looked so bloated and doughy-faced and now he looks more healthy, but almost thinner than he should be. Although I haven't paid much attention lately because I don't follow politics much. I remember before I figured all this out my face was really doughy too.

Now that would be a spokesperson.

Hey! I found on the Today show site you can actual watch that segment -

http://video.msn.com/v/us/msnbc.htm?f=00&a...2b-670e74751a8f

He said that Clinton was allergic to dairy, flour and chocolate. He said that he managed though and pointed to a pie and said that that cherry pie was made for him. He didn't say anything else about it though.

Whether he has classic celiac, a true wheat allergy or some other form of gluten issue, that would be something you DEFINITELY wouldn't want other countries to know about. Could you imagine how easy it would be for a country that wants to cause a problem to make the president sick?

I just wrote a letter to him through the Clinton Foundation and asked if he'd consider being a spokesperson. Of course, I might have to resend on Monday because I'm at home on the dino computer and don't know if the email was actually delivered. Will post with any response that I get and Nancy, thanks for the link, I'll definitely check that out!

If it were that easy to get to the president's food, I'm sure someone would have poisoned Bush a long time ago! (Why bother with wheat?)

This is from my husband -

Maybe Monica's lipstick had wheat in it. It won't make me sick if you...

Heehee, I miss Bill, too. Imagine if he were reading our forum and had an equally goofy online name like miles2go?

I mean, he's a person too, right?, that might just need a little help in the wheat/gluten department?

I still haven't heard back and tomorrow is booked solid, so I'll try and resend my original email on Wednesday, with apologies for any duplication, of course.

I knew this thread would go half-baked. :D

This seems strange as Clinton was known for his love of fast food and has stated in news articles..before his quadruple bypass, that is...that Big Macs were his favorite 'snack'.

That's right! He used to admit to a weakness for McDonalds......

    • Sometimes when those chilly winds begin to blow, and the temperatures fall, the days get visibly shorter, what we need and what we want is comfort food. Well, look no further than this simple, easy twist on scalloped potatoes. A little ham and a bit of cheese work wonders to turn that old favorite into a meal all its own. View the full article
    • Good luck with the holistic doc. I saw a naturopath for months who set me on a good path until I couldn't afford all the supplements anymore. Be careful with that. I found nothing helped me more than decent whole food and good quality vitamins. And of course sleep and lots of water!
    • Kirsty, do you have copies of the blood tests & biopsy reports? If not, get them. It's always a good idea to get copies of tests so you can refer to them later. If you have them or get them, you could post them here. It makes a difference whether you were given the full celiac panel and how many biopsies were taken from what portion of the small intestine. Also, why did you have a biopsy? Did the doc suspect celiac? What was the reasoning for doing that? Honestly, a   lot of your symptoms when you stop gluten sound like gluten withdrawal. It's something most of us experienced. Use the search box here & put in gluten withdrawal. You get a ton of threads.
    • Keep eating the bread. Get your primary care doc to do a full celiac panel although I will mention that depending on your insurance, some require you to go to a GI to get the full panel. Here's the list: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA 
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
    • I often get rapid heartbeat after meals that raise the blood sugar. But especially so after eating gluten, which is only once a day now. Sometimes I have days where it won’t get up or falls too fast, other days it gets and stays to high. In general, the more inflamed or stressed (usually from my cycle) I am, the more the blood sugar shoots up. Most important is that when I stop all gluten, it won’t get worse. I am asking a doctor for help. Endocrinologist did not take it seriously. I often have blood sugar problems without extreme values. The gastreneterologist did not think gluten was the thing to stop, but wanted me to try anti allergy medication, which made me more ill. Now I am going to see a holistic doctor, who is specialised in adrenals, female hormones and food issues. Maybe she can have a chat with my gastroenterologist. I need the backup of a doctor. Victoria, I am so glad you got over it. I don’t care if it takes a year. As long as the stomach and gut problems and itching subside.
