Is a plant based diet trend going to displace gluten free as the diet of the day.?
d by Takeda, the University of Maryland incorrectly fed gluten to a student with celiac disease, and it seems celiac disease can cause brain damage. Three big pieces of news today and let's pound through it.
Yesterday's comments on my post about nausea and vomiting being a sign of glutening rather than gastrointestinal distress were interesting. I have been advocating for the past year that people should do a gluten challenge after being gluten free for a year. My experience in the trial mimics what they are describing and it was eye opening for me. It changed my understanding of how my body reacts to gluten exposure and I am now more aware of what happens to me.
Glutening symptoms are nausea and vomiting, not diarrhea and bloating. A new set of results from ImmusanT demonstrate symptoms take almost 2 hours to set in as well.
The world doesn't understand what gluten is. They don't understand cross contamination. They just don't get it. And we shouldn't expect them to understand.
Whole Foods is closing their dedicated gluten free bakehouse. 🙁
Many, many people have celiac blood tests and biopsies that do not agree. This is a discussion of why that might happen and what it means.
I'm talking about the new at home testing kits for Celiac disease. Many people talk about not having insurance or the ability to pay for expensive Celiac testing at the doctor, but there are new at home testing kits.
Another pep talk here - celiac disease can overrun your life. My husband says that every time I'm around other people we end up talking about celiac.
Four types of celiac!
