About Me

Scott Adams was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. In 1995 he launched the site that later became Celiac.com to help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives.  He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of the (formerly paper) newsletter Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. Celiac.com does not sell any products, and is 100% advertiser supported.

  1. Celiac.com 01/15/2021 - Is Kahlúa gluten-free and safe for people with celiac disease? One question we get a lot is about gluten-free alcohol and liqueur. Specifically, is Kahlúa gluten-free and s...
  2. On the ttIgA does it show the markers for normal, and the high mark? Each lab seems to have their own scale, so it would be helpful to have this.
  3. It's a bit depressing hearing that after 25 years of hard work on this site, that the best some doctors can do when you're diagnosed is to tell you not to eat gluten, which is exactly what they told when I got diagnosed. Back then there was basically zero information on the Internet about celiac...
  4. Also, 48 hours on a gluten-free diet isn’t nearly long enough to eliminate symptoms caused by gluten sensitivity or celiac disease. With celiac disease full healing can take up to two years, depending on the gut damage level. I do remember raw garlic causing me issues during my healing time f...
  5. I agree, they normally do a ttg test as well, is that the only test that was done?
  6. I would only add that you should really put in more effort to make sure you’re 100% gluten-free. If gluten is your issue, then this is the only way to know for sure. It should relieve your symptoms.
  7. My symptoms included severe knots in my shoulder and neck muscles that often caused bad stiff necks, and this would sometimes cause a pinched nerve in my neck which included tingling sensations that shot from my right shoulder to the top of my head. I did get an MRI done on this, but they only found...
  8. Celiac.com 01/14/2021 - It's no secret that most gluten-free food sales are for snack foods. It's also no secret that most gluten-free snacks are nutritionally inferior to comparable non-gluten-free...
  9. This topic made me wonder how many celiacs have had their gallbladder removed only to discover that their problems were really caused by gluten and celiac disease and/or gluten sensitivity? I know my mother had her gall bladder removed before her celiac diagnosis. They checked my gallbladder...
  10. From the studies we've summarized, if your liver issue is caused by celiac disease and is due to eating gluten, then much of it could be reversible after a long-term gluten-free diet. How long have you been gluten-free? Are you sure your diet is 100% gluten-free? I know that others on this board...
  11. Alcat, which is a site sponsor, has a full celiac panel that is as accurate. Click here to read more about it. There are other companies like imaware that offer the tests, but I don't know which labs they use, and don't think they offer the DPG test that Alcat does offer.
