  1. Here is publication from this month summarizing human and animal studies for various promising ways to address celiac disease including AN-PEP (bottom of page 7), which is the main active component of GliadinX https://www.researchgate.net/publication/348337489_Going_Beyond_Gluten-Free_a_Review...
  2. Since you went gluten-free only a short time ago, it might make sense to go back now on gluten and to discuss with your doctor how soon you can schedule the blood tests and biopsy. If you go completely guten-free and then need to start a gluten-challenge again, that might require you to go through...
  3. GliadinX was designed for all these situations in which contamination could be present. I encourage all to read the studies that are on the GliadinX website to understand how GliadinX works. It might take a little time but I am convinced that you will find it worth while. On a different note...
  4. This is not something you have to be concerned about. A one time gluten accident is not enough to cause flattening of the villi in the mucosa that is detectable on the endoscopy (and that's why prior to an endoscopy to diagnose celiac disease, gluten has to be ingested on a regular basis for multiple...
  5. This is just a recent paper that describes how enzymes including AN-PEP (the main enzyme in GliadinX) break down the gliadin molecule before it enters the small intestine https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6530343/ These enzymes do not cure celiac disease because they do not have...
  6. Indeed, the flow agent maltodextrin that is in GliadinX is potato derived. Sometimes that component is wheat derived but the potato source was chosen (even if the wheat derived option is also considered gluten-free because of the purification) to avoid any concern of gluten contamination. I do not...
  7. Nasal allergies can absolutely make you dizzy. The organ that controls balance is inside the inner ear which is right next to the middle ear. There is a tube that goes from pharynx to the middle ear that equalizes the pressure between the middle ear and the pharynx. When you are on a plane and are...
  8. I wonder what makes you think that. Here is a cross-section view that shows the proximity of the nasal cavity to the brain https://www.discovermagazine.com/mind/is-the-human-olfactory-bulb-necessary. The cranial nerve that is responsible for smelling (olfactory bulb) is actually a direct extension...
  9. My contribution to this thread is inspired by Dr. Guandalini who is a world renowned expert https://www.uchicagomedicine.org/find-a-physician/physician/stefano-guandalini I have spoken recently to him and his opinion is that biopsies are widely overused in the US because the blood tests...
  10. (I am in a different field but I would not let my patients dangle for a month before discussing a biopsy result and you might be able to speak to your doctor over the phone but still keeping your follow up appointment for a more detailed discussion.) In any case, If the celiac panel was (really)...
  11. Just a few days ago, I happened to talk to Dr. Guandalini, the founder of the University of Chicago Celiac Center (please feel free to do a web-search, who he is) about the recent good test results of my own children and how it relates to GliadinX. He actually performed the endoscopy on one of my...
  12. I hope that the COVID thing will resolve before you finish reading it.
  13. My children were in a similar situation. They were pretty much asymptomatic but they were incidentally diagnosed because of the high antibodies. They had the entire celiac panel, genetic test and endomysial test. On a gluten-free diet the numbers went down but when they started taking the enzymes...
  14. This is a description of the enzymes by one of the most prominent celiac researcher there is https://www.healio.com/news/gastroenterology/20170831/latiglutenase-improves-symptoms-in-celiac-disease A follow up study is being planned and patients are being recruited. This is the underlying...
  15. I have been working with enzymes for many years and until recently, most celiacs cringed when they heard the word "enzymes". That is clearly changing. Now you can even see on the Stanford University celiac page under the highlighted innovation section that enzymes can prevent an inflammatory reaction...
