An Open Letter to Skeptical Health Care Practitioners
Smell can cause anxiety in some of us, and inhaled flour can cause a reaction. My concern would be the flour on the box. Consider a pizza parlor kitchen....consider the flour everywhere and how flour can stay air borne for hours. Now that box, probably has a light coating of flour on the outside. Not much and not really enough to be overly concerned about. But make sure you do not like hold it above your head or at chest level where you might inhale some. Also wash your hands after hands after handling it.
Seriously not much to worry about but just some extra precautions.
Good point. Because it doesn't feel like acne. It is very very similar to Keratosis. Though in a different area and it appeared in the summer. I wonder if Keratosis can also be hormone triggered?...
I am treating with chemical and mild physical peeling, and tretinoin. Little improvement only. Hoping it disappears with a little patience.
Thank you for the tip!
Hey guys, I'm not sure if this is a silly question, but is it possible to get glutened from carrying closed pizza boxes containing regular wheat pizza? As part of my office job, I occasionally have to carry delivered pizzas into conference rooms (holding them for only 1-2 minutes). There's not necessarily any visible crumbs on the boxes, and I wash my hands immediately after. I just wasn't sure if the proximity to the wheat or the pizza smell could cause anything. Any insight is appreciated!
P.S. Even after being diagnosed with Celiac for almost 9 years, I still have questions like these!
Are doctors even getting close to diagnosing the actual number of cases of celiac disease? Or are they missing the vast majority?
Researchers have said for some time that there are far more people with celiac disease than are being diagnosed, and that the vast majority of case go undiagnosed.
If a new study by Canadian nutrition researchers is any indication, most cases of celiac disease remain undiagnosed.
