  4. Celiac's Disease and The ABC Celiac.com 06/26/2007 - Celiac disease is one of the most common chronic health disorders in western countries. It is also one of the most under-diagnosed. Up until ten years ago, medical schools taught that celiac disease was relatively rare and only affected about 1 in 2,500 people. It was also thought to be a disease that primarily affected children and young people. Recent studies and advances in diagnosis show that at least 3 million Americans, or about 1 in 133 people have celiac disease, but only 1-in-4,700 is ever diagnosed. The National Institutes of Health shows the prevalence of celiac disease to other well-known conditions as follows: Celiac Disease affects 3 million Americans Epilepsy affects 2.8 million Americans Crohn's Disease affects 500,000 Americans Ulcerative Colitis affects 500,000 Americans Multiple Sclerosis affects 333,000 Americans Cystic Fibrosis affects 30,000 Americans If people with celiac disease continue to eat gluten, studies show that their risk of gastrointestinal cancer is 40 to 100 times that of the normal population. In addition to increased cancer risk, untreated celiac disease is associated with osteoporosis, and a two-fold increase in the risk of fractures, including first-time hip fractures. Moreover, an unusually high percentage of people with celiac disease suffer from the following related conditions (% in parenthesis): Anemia (3-6%) Arthritis (20%) Ataxia (40%) Cancer
  5. I have found these vitamin powders that you mix up with juice I feel better since starting to use them. I think that they are more absorbable than pills https://www.secure.all-one.com/en/index.php I have found them cheaper online than on their site and my local Good Foods grocery carries them The ones that are gluten free say so I have no interest in this company I got tired of the sticky bottles with liquid vitamins so this is a good thing for me
  6. Am I the only one? The other morning I could swear I could smell english muffins, hot buttered english muffins. Last night I could have sworn that I could smell toasted pound cake with ice cream on it. Thes aren't the only times this has happened, just the two most recent. Not being able to eat gluten is bad enough, but starting the day smelling english muffins is not a happy way to start the day
  7. One of the things that excites me about this is a national company is paying attention to Celiac's disease. This could lead othe large regional or national companies to do the same giving us easier andd better access to products that we must order online or hunt for. It can only be good for us to have more publicity. And my local beer dist already has it and is looking for more gluten-free beers to handle. I think this is a result of A-B producing this product.
  8. Anheuser-Busch ships sorghum beer Redbridge caters to those on gluten-free diets Dec 20, 2006 - The search for gluten-free beer gets easier for drinkers this week as Anheuser-Busch releases Redbridge, the first nationally distributed sorghum-based beer. The beer has been in testing for more than a year and many A-B distributors have already lined up placements in stores, such as Whole Foods and Wild Oats, featuring organic and other speciality foods. A few regional brewers cater to those seeking gluten-free beer. Lakefront Brewery in Milwaukee won a gold medal at the 2006 Great American Beer Festival with New Grist Ale, while contract-brewed Bard's Tale Ale now ships to 18 states. Ramapo Valley Brewery in New York also makes a honey-based beer, and Saint Louis Brewery (Schlafly bees) produces a sorghum beer sold only in it Bottleworks brewpub. Two women in Arkansas are seeking investors for a brewery that would produce only gluten-free beers and hope to be shipping Dark Hills Brewery products within a year. Sorghum beers serve first those with celiac disease, although those allergic to wheat may also drink them. According to government statistics, more than 2 million Americans have been diagnosed with celiac disease. The genetic disorder causes stomach cramps and digestive problems and can lead to other serious health risks. People with celiac disease cannot tolerate gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, oats and spelt. Those are the grains traditionally used to brew beer. Anheuser-Busch worked closely with the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) during the development of Redbridge. It is brwed at A-B's Merrimack, N.H., brewery, contains 4.8% abv and has a suggested retail price of $7.99 for a six-pack of 12-ounce bottles.
