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 01/23/2021 - If you love chiles rellenos, but had to ditch them when you gave up gluten, this wonderful gluten-free version ditches the batter, but not the flavor. These batter-free, gluten...
  2. It's been a little over a month for you, but it can take two years to recover: Keep a food diary for other foods that may be causing you issues, for example main celiacs can't have dairy until their guts are fully healed.
  3. Many doctors are now diagnosing celiac disease based on blood tests alone, especially if your results are 10x the celiac level range. If you can find the celiac disease cut off level for your ttg test and share it, it would be more helpful. For example, if it were 20, then you'd be 10x the celiac...
  4. Welcome to the forum! Just so you know, the average time for celiacs to heal on a gluten-free diet is around two years. Given that it's only been a couple of weeks, it will likely take quite a bit more time for you to recover. Some obvious things to watch that could also cause the stomach...
  5. Have you tried more whole foods like eggs, potatoes, vegetables, cheeses, meats, etc.? Some of those weight gain shakes have tons of ingredients. Above all, be sure his diet is gluten-free, and you may need to see if he has additional intolerance issues, but you haven't mentioned other symptoms besides...
  6. Celiac.com 01/22/2021 - We get a lot of questions about alcohol, and one we've seen a lot is about coffee liqueurs, like Kahlúa. We actually did an article specifically on Kahlúa, but those answers a...
  7. I drink coffee daily and have never had an issue. There is nothing in coffee that people with celiac disease need to avoid, this is a myth.
  8. Celiac.com 01/21/2021 - We get a lot of questions about Red Bull. Specifically, is Red Bull energy drink gluten-free and safe for people with celiac disease? As with most sports and energy drinks...
  9. There is at least one newer study not on this list...but here are some studies on GliadinX: Extra-Intestinal Manifestation of Celiac Disease in Children. Nutrients 2018, 10(6), 755; doi:10.3390/nu10060755 Efficient degradation of gluten by a prolyl endoprotease in a gastrointestinal...
  10. It is a single case study, but I thought it was interesting. https://pn.bmj.com/content/20/2/144.full
  11. Sorry not to answer your specific questions, but I do want to try to help. Of course, going gluten-free is crucial, which it sounds like you already know. Hopefully you understand the details of a 100% gluten-free diet. I was wondering if your doctor did a blood test for vitamin &...
