Are we as forum members, allowed to respond to these articles here? If not, please delete. I'm new here. I see there is not much conversation here...

but I was saddened by the article somewhat making it sound like it could be damaging to take your child off gluten, especially if they haven't tested for celiac...

I was actually told by my daughter's pediatric GI that he felt it cruel to take a child off gluten esp when other kids get to eat it. Told me right in front of her. I was asking for blood tests with possible biopsy in sight. I was thinking how bad of a parent I would be to not take her off of it and see if it helps her health and body.

She deals with constant constipation and ezcema. His cure? Miralax and mineral oil daily. How is that any less cruel than taking my child off gluten/wheat products to see if it helps her system???

Hmmmm...

I hope others might read the article and respond as well.

Uhm, uh, yeah, we're supposed to comment here if we want. Why would the board owner be wanting to delete a bad article when he can have real life celiacs and gluten intolerants reading them and critiquing all the mistakes, especially when they're that bad.

I have noticed this year after reading dozens of these stories and seeing a few things on video from cable "news" that the Main Stream Media in more than one country apparently has some sort of template for repeating the same misconceptions over and over again. Most of the trash seems to be coming from so - called registered or professional dieticians in the US, the UK, and Canada, altho one of the worst ones was Dr. Nancy Snyderman on MSNBC, (she is their "medical editor", btw) telling a woman that asked that her recently diagnosed celiac husband might not have to stay gluten free for the rest of his life. I was rather astonished there was less outcry over that awful, snotty mistake, if you watch the entire interview you see that "Dr." Snyderman is absolutely clueless on the fact that this is a real autoimmune disease, and not a "lifestyle choice" or "fad diet" being taken up by her neurotic peer group. I felt like I was watching one of the food trolls that lurk on the internet, the ones who tell you there's no relationship between disease and diet, coming out of the closet.

Now on to Dr. Peggy Marcon's bothersome quotes

In fact, she says, gluten-free foods can be quite harmful due to the extra additives and preservatives in gluten-free products like cookies and breads. As well, they are often high in calories

    • Dang, Ennis.  You rock!  Ironic and I must be near brain dead.  Did I mention that school is out today!!!!!!  I feel so sleep deprived!  S U M M E R! 
    • Wow you have ALOT going on! Sorry to hear about your ongoing issues. Are you super duper strict with avoiding gluten or do you think you are still getting cross contamination? I will check out that portion of the forum- THANKS a bunch for that. It is all a bit overwhelming. I saw some people post that they saw "dramatic improvement!" within 2 weeks and I'm going rreeeaaalllly? *insert sarcasm.. haha. I know I wont get that lucky. I take metformin and armour and victoza. Type 2 diabetes runs in my family too. My glucose levels were never really high and I never got the official type 2 diagnosis but ive dropped all excess weight on these meds. I hope to wean soon. Did you fix the leaky gut? That is a daunting task isn't it!    
    • I contemplated "heel strike" but nah.....it was celiac disease/malabsorption.  I am still running and my ferritin is nice and normal now.    It resolved within three or four months of a gluten-free diet and some iron.  I also ran a 1/2 marathon despite it being a 2 (pre-diagnosis) and a few century rides.   I think you might need to worry if your hemoglobin dramatically drops.  My docs were always asking if I wanted a blood transfusion.  Amazing how the body adapts.  My Thalassemia tends to keep my hemoglobin just below range.  The drops in ferritin caused it to plummet.  Had a hard time catching my breath!    I probably asked this, but has Crohn's been ruled out?  My niece went to 4 different GI's.  celiac disease was ruled out, but a pill camera revealed Crohn's damage at the end of her small intestine finally.    
    • Err... don't know what happened to this thread in my absence, but thought I'd add some input that might be helpful. I'd been having some weird low-level CC issues for the last few weeks and couldn't figure out what it was - I eat very conservatively (only eat certified products or fresh meat/produce/dairy) and it was driving me crazy! I saw this thread and thought about it a bit and realized that things seemed to have gotten worse around the time of my last coffee ground purchase, where I'd bought a different brand than I'd been using previously. Anyways, I switched to a fancier brand and things cleared up immediately. If anyone should come across this, the brand apparently causing issue for me was President's Choice. This is a store brand for the Loblaws chain in Canada, so probably not worth worrying about for most. I've not yet had time to contact them about this, but this brand does also offer a number of flavoured coffee grounds (used to buy these pre-gluten-free), so there is some CC potential there assuming they process these products on the same line. I guess I will be sticking with whole bean coffee or smaller/snobbier brands that don't do flavoured stuff for the foreseeable future.
