here are over 300 symptoms of celiac disease. When untreated, celiac can affect every part of the body. The liver can be affected by celiac and you need a liver to be alive. Today, we will talk about what the liver does and how celiac can affect the liver.
The classic picture of someone with celiac disease is underweight with a history of diarrhea. This picture is changing with more and more asymptomatic, overweight, constipated, anemic, or those with a constellation of vague symptoms being diagnosed with celiac disease. But today, we are going to focus on weight.
We are all social distancing now, but that will end at some point. I was thinking about what should we say when people ask about celiac.
I often start to write articles and then something else will pop up - a new study or a question from you all. Currently, I have 34 articles that have been started or never finished. Re-reading this one is sort of like re-reading a journal from years ago. It marks a moment in time. Here is a look into what I was thinking on Valentine's Day this year!

Any exposure to gluten causes damage. A crumb of gluten damages the system as if a celiac sufferer had eaten a piece of bread. The only way to improve our situation is participation in clinical trials!
Over the past few weeks, I've really been experimenting. I've wanted to expand what we eat because grilled chicken can only be cooked so many ways. Here's what I've been cooking, including recipes, and how they turned out. I hope you try these out too!
The three S's of celiac disease - symptoms, self-diagnosis, and my soapbox.
Over the past 10 years there has been an increase in the number of celiac patients around the world. A few theories regarding the increase in cases are increased awareness, easier screening for celiac, increased hygiene, increased gluten consumption earlier in life, and increased concentration of gluten proteins in wheat. We are going to talk about a recent study evaluating the immunostimulatory parts of wheat.
Yesterday we discussed how it felt to have Covid and what my symptoms were. Because I've seen several posts in the group regarding how covid symptoms are similar to when someone gets glutened. For me, they were absolutely different in symptoms and intensity. Let's explore!
