I know I'm really picky about these articles--probably unfairly, as the author might not understand celiac as well if he/she don't have it. But the little things bother me: the "are you eating wheat-free...you're not alone" thing at the beginning for a few reasons: 1) It's also rye, barley, and all forms of these ingredients (malt, spelt, triticum, etc.). 2) It makes it sound like eating gluten-free is the same as eating low-carb.....

It's good to get the word out, though, maybe someone will look up celiac disease and learn more or get a diagnosis. I'm just...very picky/stringent about the details

Oh, by the way, thank you for sharing with us :). I like to read these

Summer time is coming, and with it will be the barbecues at friends houses. I will eat my hamburger with no bun, using a knife and fork, and the ladies will ask me how I like doing the Atkins diet. I will then show them the huge mound of salad on my plate, and educate someone else on Celiac Disease. Articles like this one at the very least get the name of the disease out into the public eye!

Yes--and at least this article doesn't mention someone like that celebrity (in another post) who eats the insides of sandwiches...this gives accurate information, rather than forming an image that falsely portrays the restrictions, difficulty, and importance of contamination.

I like the fact that they mentioned that also thick people can have celiac, not only thin people. Some things are said a little stupid, but to be honest. This is the best-written celiac article (from a layman probably) I ever saw so far. We're getting more publicity. Woohoo :lol:

Hugs, Stef

    • I hope you don't have to wait too long for the results. A false negative is always possible since we have a lot of intestine but it sounds like you have a good doctor who took lots of biopsies.  Since she had a high positive it would be a good idea for her to do the diet strictly for a few months no matter the results. I hope you get some clear answers and that she is feeling better soon.
    • I did not see anyone give ideas about milk-based gravies or sauces yet, but I found a great solution by trial and error because so many recipes I love call for "cream of mushroom" or "cream of chicken" soup. Just melt a little butter with diced onion and put in some rice flour with a bit of milk and heat until bubbly. Add more milk (or chicken/beef stock) a little at a time until you have the amount you need. Salt/pepper as desired. Green bean casserole is still possible! Yay! Crush up some potato chips or those gluten free french fried onions that Aldi sells and it's just like old times before gluten free days:) There's really nothing else to it but if you feel like you need to watch someone do it before you are confident enough to try it on your own, you can see our family's simple little recipe here. Nothing fancy, just some free encouragement...  
    • So my type 1 daughter had her biopsy today and the gi afterwards noticed some redness/inflammation (gastritis?) but also saw the villi.  I guess I was expecting that with her blood test result of her transglutinminase ttg iga of over 100 that she would definitely see some damage.  Her symptoms seem to be ramping up as well.  She took multiple biopsies in several locations and now we wait.  Do you think that there is a chance that with a very positive blood test result she could have a negative biopsy?  My daughter was saying that she would like the positive biopsy to know for sure and to make it easier to stick to being gluten free forever.    This is really hard waiting
    • Avocados are packed with good fats. Aldi and Lidl often have them on offer.  You may be able to tolerate sweet potatos if you're looking for a carb. They're better for you than potatoes, lower glycaemic index and more nutrients. Ask the pharmacy if they can order in the folic acid variant your after or order it online? All the best! Matt
    • The outcome wasn't good, but if the planning had gone on for that long they could've contacted the tavern in advance and either satisfied themselves about their standards or cleared the child to bring in a snack. Instead they've lawyered up and a great many people are going to go through a lot of stress which didn't really need to happen.
