  1. Any Celiac(s) From Canada

    Victoria, BC here, moving to Toronto someday. Forget the test if you are avoiding wheat now. The test looks for anitbodies and assumes you are eating a lot of wheat right now. If not, the test doesn't work. Everyone should be screened for celiac - it would save your province an immense amount of health care dollars. So says Fasano himself: Gut. 2003 Feb;52(2):168-9. [bELOW] Comment in: Gut. 2003 Feb;52(2):170-1. Gut. 2004 Jan;53(1):154-5. Gut. 2004 Oct;53(10):1545-6. European and North American populations should be screened for coeliac disease. Fasano A. Division of Pediatric GI and Nutrition, Center for Celiac Research, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, USA. afasano@peds.umaryland.edu PMID: 12524393 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12524393
  2. Bullied

    I was certainly bullied in school, all the way through - but it was much worse in University - from the professors. They didn't want mutants in their fine country club. Subtler bullying (a little) but much nastier, and much more sincere. They were all good politically correct gentlemen doing it, too.
  3. Celiac is an immune reaction, you shouldn't expect to see results until at least a few weeks are gone, and that's if you do everything perfectly which won't happen off the start.
  4. Terrifying Dreams And Gluten

    There's a very strong correlation between celiac and sleep apnea. With sleep apnea, in a deep sleep your brain has to increase your level of adrenalin sharply to wake you up if you're not breathing. It will do whatever it takes to do that, wake you up and save your life. I'm always amused by how inventive "cruel to be kind" brain can be! Extraordinarily, and viciously so. Makes me awfully calm in real life though... nothing compares.
