Gluten introduction and babies

Expecting a baby is nerve racking and exciting time. Parents can begin to introduce solid foods at 4 to 6 months. For most, this is a very exciting time. But for those with celiac, moving to solid foods can be a time a of great concern. If a parent or sibling has celiac disease, there is a much greater chance that the child will have celiac disease. So, when is the best time to introduce gluten containing foods to at risk children?

Grateful to you!

Thank you for reading!!!

Controlling celiac

The only “cure” for celiac disease is a gluten free diet. No medicine or pills can degrade the gluten to alleviate the autoimmune cascade associated with celiac disease. I think we need to talk about control rather than the gluten free diet being a cure.

Leaky gut

Leaky gut or the idea that the gut is overly porous and things that should be contained within the digestive tract are leaking out into the body causing disease. This is a common idea in the pantheon of Facebook groups, naturopathic doctors, functional medicine, chiropractors, and other less traditional medical arenas. But is it legit?

AMG 714/PRV 015

A new clinical trial is scheduled for what was once known as AMG714. It is now Pro015 due to the licensing and funding agreement between Amgen and Provention Bio.

Bacteria causes Celiac?

There might be a link to an acquired bacteria and celiac disease leading to potential prevention and cure of the disease.

Steatorrhea & Celiac

I am obsessed with poo. I look at it in the toilet, examine it, think about it, wonder if it is too much or too little, and even sometimes take pictures of it. I really use my poo as a gauge of my health. I even ask my kids about their poo habits. I want to talk about a few things poo related – steatorrhea and gastrocolic reflex.

Stay Vigilant!

I think I have it together and then this disease checks it!

Gluten free vs. Gluten friendly

Why are we seeing “Gluten friendly” menu items instead of “Gluten free”?

Italy, children, and celiac
