I'm surprised I haven't found anything here yet on the latest garbage said on the Today Show. Read this blog post by Gluten Dude: http://glutendude.com/gluten/celiac-disease-is-trend/

Apparently a Dr. Keri Peterson said Celiac Disease was a "trendy disease" and "easy to manage." Am I the only one who is outraged here? This is ridiculous!

Not for us, but it has in fact become a bit trendy. BUT, if it created more products available for us or more legitimate awareness....bring it ON!

Although, Domino's Pizza got it very wrong! Bet, they will withdrawal their gluten free pizza campaign and product real fast.

The problem is the gluten-free diet has more awareness these days but it should be celiac disease getting the awareness . It's just about profit the gluten-free diet they don't really care about us who suffer from the disease . I blame the gluten-free fad , there was an article on here a while back about celebrities going gluten free and we all know these celebrities are pathetic doing anything for attention yet it's because of them the disease is called trendy .

Domino's Pizza is just ridiculous really , what were they thinking $

I've had several people mention the Domino's pizza to me. There is no way my boys and I would eat it. If you are going to be bold enough to do something like that, you need to do it right from the start. I've eaten at Mellow Mushroom and have done well. They have separate toppings, pans and room for prep. They do share the oven though, but don't see that as a problem.

It's frustrating because now with the Domino's thing, my friends are all texting and sending me the link and getting all excited, which I love....but when I tell them that it isn't safe for me I get the "oh there's the debby downer" or "oh yea, I'd forgotten how picky you are, even with gluten free stuff"....

neat!

This has been a very frustrating week. First the Domino's thing, and then the Today Show. It really pisses me off. Celiac Disease is NOT a trend, companies and celebrities going their version of "gluten free" for weight loss is trend. I hated how cavalier she was about it, too. :angry:

You know what the real irony is? The stuff you see about how "unhealthy" a gluten-free diet is. But quite frankly, if people are having any luck using gluten-free as a weight loss tool - they are eating very few if any processed gluten-free foods - they're eating "whole foods" which has been touted as healthy forever.

So, duh. People are eating a whole food diet and losing weight. Big shocker???? Nope.

And then the doubly funny bit is that Domino's comes out with a gluten-free crust that isn't a gluten-free pizza - which isn't a whole food AT ALL...which is apparently targeted at this "weight loss" market because the majority of people with a true gluten issue can't eat the things.

Well, at least we all can call ourselves trendsetters - instead of followers like Gwyneth Paltrow and Miley Cyrus :P

    • MariaofColumbia,   I came across this thread when a two different friends had posted on facebook.  I read it and felt like you were talking to me.  I've had issues for 7 years now.  My candida cannot get under control.  I went and checked my vitamin B levels and they are high.  I've been on methyl folate for several months now, but only one pill a day.  I do have one MTHFR gene mutation.  I've tried SO MANY candida diets/options and the minute I stray it is back out of whack...or it never really gets rid of it.  I pick up viruses fairly frequently because my immune system is so taxed.  I'm so very tired of dealing with this!!!  I'm wondering if you could go into more detail as to what exactly you started taking/how often/what foods you still avoided (sugar/vinegar/mushrooms/peanut butter/etc), and where your healthy B levels are at now?  You can find me on facebook as Jessica Hecker Andersen and we could always private message as well.  I really wish I could just call you!  lol.  Please, any further information would be very much appreciated.  Thank you!
    • Thank you all for taking the time to respond.  It's comforting to know I have a place to ask questions and share my concerns.   My daughter's antibodies are as follows: 1/9/17:  783.6 (before stopping gluten) 5/16/17: 69.7 8/14/17: 50.6 Her thyroid/hormones all in normal range.  An endoscopy in May showed her villi looked good with minimal damage. Her B12 (checked on 8/14/17) is excellent.  Her antibodies will be checked again when she returns home in Dec.  She avoids gluten as much as possible, however she's away at college so cross contamination is likely.  She eats extremely well -- mostly salads, vegetables, protein, fruits, rice.  When on the go she supplements with kind bars, quest bars, or Rx bars.  She'll snack on gluten-free crackers (Blue Diamond made from almonds), hummus, peanut butter, and popcorn.  Once in awhile she'll treat herself to Tate's gluten-free cookies or Halo ice cream.  She's in college so, yes, she drinks alcohol on occasion.  Titos gluten-free vodka, but no beer!  Since stopping gluten her stomach feels much better, less bloating and pain (her main complaints before stopping gluten).  I do notice when she's home on break from college she will have a healthy, nice sized portion of food at each meal and say she feels very full afterward, yet shortly after she will feel hungry again and need to reach for a snack (always a healthy one).  She takes 2 gluten free gummy Multi-Vites (same as Costco brand I believe) as well as vitamin D daily.   She was diagnosed with celiac on 1/11/17, stopped gluten immediately, and her last period started on 1/13/17.  For six years her period was very regular and it only changed once she stopped eating gluten.  I have to believe there is a connection.  The frustrating part is that nobody has any answers.  I know my daughter would feel a lot better if her cycle returned.  We will seek the advice of a nutritionist as well as continue speaking to doctors, but in the meantime if you have any more suggestions I welcome them (i.e., foods, supplements, vitamins, etc).  Thank you all very much!            
    • If only they were peanut free . I been buying my seeds from Gerbs allergen friendly foods for past 5+ years. I end up buying my almonds, walnuts, and pistachios from dedicated companies....got to admit I get a better deal on almonds but I go through 25lbs every 2 months.
    • Good to know I would like to get more nuts and seeds  but find many retailers by me have the shared equipment claim on package so I've held off other than some almonds. My daughter and I are battling over all the fresh pumpkin seeds I've been roasting so I should see if nuts .com sells some a 5 lb bag would fix the ordeal likely a need for magnesium -
