Hi All,

I have just joined this forum and was reading the article posted about 'Chef Masters' TV program.

I am writing this from Australia and am interested that your TV program mentioned gluten free at all. Just like the US craze, Australia has really taken to cooking shows and now 'Celebrity Chef' cooking competitions on the box. I am curious though about how many times gluten free is generally mentioned in the press there. I have done articles on the US market for the local Gluten Free Pages site and know that you are now the global market leader, but that doesnt always translate to prime time gluten free coverage.

IN Oz for instance, while we have a strong gluten-free market, Gluten free is hardly metioned on TV or radio. Even though we have one of the highest celiac diagnosis rates in the world, we find that the rare times gluten-free is mentioned it is done so in a negative mocking manner - adding to the sceptism that the disease is a fake! I long for the day when gluten free goes mainstream and loses its stigma. Perhaps it will have to start off on community cable first, or get a backing from the Prime Minister before it can become legitimate.

This could be one instance where the Aussies can learn from the Kiwis. :D I am in Christchurch, and that is where I saw the show, and it was on broadcast TV, not on Sky, although of course an American show. I find that almost every week there are gluten free sections in the food columns of magazines and newspapers somewhere that I come across. This was the second cooking show where I had seen gluten free done to some extent. I do admit there is little mention of it in serious discussion shows, but I think this is true pretty much everywhere. We just have to keep plugging away and increase awareness. I sent an email to Sky about a mini-gluten free program that runs in the US that I saw this summer (one of the 10-minute shows) and they replied that they would look into obtaining it. Keep the faith :)

Hi Mushroom,

thanks for the 'heads up'. Australia is expanding its digital channels because of the upcoming HD TV change over, However except for ABC and SBS this is mostly very old repeats or new teenage trash pop shows. Since I dont use Pay TV maybe we will have to wait for a few celebrities to go celiac disease and get on TV about it before it becomes 'popular' !

Our forum has recently undergone a software "upgrade" :P (well, I suppose it is :rolleyes: ) but in so doing we lost some of the good features of the old software. One of them was that it would have let you know where I am, a feature I found very helpful, and if the poster preferred not to state where they were from you could figure out their general location because their profile gave you their local time (are you listening, Skaught??). You cannot assume that all posters are in the U.S. We have quite a few Aussies, and posters from Japan, Beijing, south America, many from Canada including one of our moderators.

Heaven forbid that it should become 'popular' as in 'fad', which is what we have to keep fighting. Too many already believe we do this because it is "the thing" to do and not because we have to. :o

We already have several regular broadcast HD channels; maybe we are not so far behind after all B)

    • Optimistic! (Insert jumping up & down with joy emoji here) You are doing GREAT!!!    Kudos!
    • 9 years ago I was over 200lbs, health started going down hill in college and dropped to under 125 3 years ago. Gaining weight again and now it is muscle. I found I had to add in KAL nutritional yeast to my meals at least 2-6tbsp a meal for the stuff I was not getting due to food intolerance and removing processed foods. Stuff really does help quite a bit. I also take liquid health supplements like the Stress & Energy. The binge eats  I STILL get years later, find myself just fixing a extra glass of protein shake and a nut flour and egg white bread when I am still hungry or mindlessly munching on almonds and seeds. Heck today was 7 egg white spinach omelette with nutritional yeast in it, 4 cups of homemade almond butter/almond milk sugar free icrecream with 3 scoops of protein powder, and then I had 3 pieces of coconut toast, a few hand fulls of pumpkin seeds, and then kept munching on a snack mix I made of hemp seeds and cocoa nibs. >.< I am gaining weight slowly again and up to 130lbs for a 5'11" male >.> I think my hunger might stem from working out alot recently. Bit of a list here from stuff I take and others https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/116482-supplement-and-foods-you-take/ PS if you new to this diet check out the 101 thread will help you out alot avoiding CC https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ I would help you out with foods but the EU/UK area I am not that familar with and sourcing I am sure some of our other members can help you out.
    • Once your tTg is in the normal range, and it's only 1 point away from that, that would be considered excellent results.  tTg just has to be in the normal range to be called a success.  The number you want to be as low as possible within the normal range is the DGP or AGA testing, as that tests for dietary compliance.  This is why it is a good idea to run both tests because it gives a more complete picture.  But with these results I would say you are doing an excellent job with the diet!
    • I started a topic a couple of weeks ago about my type 1 daughter with a ttg iga result of greater than 100 being suspected of having celiac.  She saw the GI and has her biopsy scheduled for this coming Tuesday.  Seems like there is no doubt that it will show celiac but we will know soon.  I have started thinking about some of the symptoms that I have had and before my house goes gluten-free would like to test and make sure that I am not testing positive for celiac as well.  My symptoms are always tired--easy to write off--been really constipated and bloated which is a relatively new phenomenon for me.  Sometimes I get tingling in my legs/feet but that hasn't been too bothersome.   My primary care doctor tested my ttg igg which was 3 (<6 is negative) and ttg iga was <1 (<or =4 positive)  It doesn't look like he ran an immunoglobulin a test to verify that I am not immunoglobulin a deficient   He ran a cbc that showed that my MCH was high (34) indicating that I could be deficient in B12 or folic acid--I rarely drink so I don't think that could have skewed the results.  Could this be indicative of anything?  My doctor just said all my labs are good.  Do you think this rules out celiac for me or would you try to do further clarification/testing? Thanks!
    • Hi all, my TTG/iga came back. It was 4. 0-3 is considered negative and 4-10 is weak positive.  In January it was 12 and before my endoscopy in October it was >100. it plummeted those first 2 months but seems to be taking more time to get lower. Should I feel optimistic? I guess 4 seems ok.
