Celiac Disease In The News

I get a couple articles every day from a news alert I have for celiac. I think instead of starting a new topic for each article, I'll just post a few articles under here every day. I'll only start new topics for those of great importance/interest:

March 24-25

Thanks celiac3270!

I haven't been to that store in a while and that is big news to me about the new pasta products.

I visited that doctor in Troy and was more than a little disappointed. He explained to me how too many people think they have Celiac when they don't. Very different from the interviews I had read. Well I left the office getting another useless blood test ( gluten free diet ), and a written diagnoses of IBS (no diagnoses and the insurance company won't pay the bill).

That was very interesting indeed.

Only:

She was forced to give up her bread-making hobby.

That's a pity as we know there are a number of ways of making gluten-free bread as we know (just got a bit out of practice, myself).

celiac3270, how do you get these alerts? Is there a setting on your browser? Something that I can set mine to get?

Another article...lol: article about a Celiac's Easter

Dessa, I get the news alerts from google. You can set them up so that if the word..."celiac" is used anywhere in the article, they will send it to you...I know there are others, but Google works well, so I'm satisfied with it.

These articles aren't anything...new...but I just post them in case there's anything interesting in them for someone. Also, if someone won't believe you about...the celiac disease and osteoporosis link, you can show them 15 articles on it and ask if all the newspapers are lying :lol: just kidding.

Dessa, did the alert work?

Death?

Since when does celiac cause an immediate death?

Could he be allergic to gluten and a celiac maybe?

I'm happy to keep doing this if you'd like me to, but just want to know if people want to see the articles or not.....I don't want to keep posting here and bumping it to the front if nobody wants to read it. ;) I don't mind either way...just want to know if this is getting in the way or not. :)

celiac3270,

Thank you so much for your dedication for providing this forum with more education. I am looking for more information on the gluten test sticks. I read an article on these small portable instant tests to check food for gluten.

    • Kaiser offers the full panel, but a primary care MD can not order it -- only a GI.  Again, a visual is not needed.  Damage is usually severe if it can be seen visually (e.g. Scalloping, etc.).  Villi are microscopic though.   Search through the Kaiser directory and find one who has some mention of celiac disease in his bio.  Now, that you have been referred to a GI, you can schedule another appointment on your own.  Wait first for the pathologist's report.  They might not put it on the patient portal, so get a hard copy for your records.  If it is negative and they took four or biopsies, you will have your answer. Then you can consider trialing the diet.  If they did not take enough samples, ask for the DGP and EMA tests, including the control test IGA deficiency (which affects 10% of celiacs, but do not quote me on this).  You could wait a few years until you think damage is severe enough to find.  celiac disease can be hard to diagnose.  It can develop at anytime.   Don't forget you might have a gluten sensitivity too and not celiac disease.   Kaiser responds well to requests in writing.  Try the patient portal first before a registered letter.  If they are not following the standard level of care, they are at risk for a lawsuit.  Be nice.  Say something lame in your letter like,  "We had such a nice short visit, so I  forgot to ask ....blah, blah, blah." My own relatively new PCP is still learning about celiac disease.  That is okay.  At least she has an open mind.    
    • It is gluten free...I eat it regularly and have had no issues and it tastes yummy. 😀
    • A quick update: I emailed my primary doctor and she is on the same page as the GI doctor, saying the Endoscopy looks normal. Even before we've gotten the biopsy back.  By the way, I should mention I'm dealing with Kaiser in the Bay Area, CA and everything I've found about Kaiser on these forums is horrible and similar to my own experience.  I specifically asked about all the components of the full celiac panel and that I would like to get it and all she said was: "The lab tests are not perfect. Although they may indicate an increased risk for celiac, they are not as specific as the biopsy." So, now we should just ignore the positive IgG? How am I supposed to know if I'm IgA deficient if they don't test for that? I replied and asked again and she said that Kaiser doesn't offer the full panel. Why not? And I said I want vitamin and iron tests and no reply to that yet.              
    • Thank you so much for all the help and support you have given me. I cannot thank you enough. I am ever so sorry to post again here but wondered if I could check with you about this. When at work, I very rarely get chance to eat a lot and so have always been eating the Milky Way UK bars, which I believe contain gluten or barley. I usually have around 6 of these as they tide me over until getting home. I also have two slices of bread on a morning. I was wondering whether this would be sufficient as I am worried in case I haven't had enough gluten?  Thank you for everything and I wanted to apologise for being a nuisance on here.
    • Thanks Matt I appreciate your response and assistance getting " moved to my own thread" thanks so much. I do have the results of my labs they took and am unsure which labs are which so I will try to attach them and perhaps someone can help me decode them.😂   Thanks again Heidi
