Another study came out saying that the gluten free diet is insufficient for the adequate treatment of celiac disease. Even those with well controlled symptoms may still have a low grade inflammatory fire burning in your guts. Let's discuss.
here are a variety of clinical trials out there for those with celiac disease. Some are observational - where you just report to the researchers what you ate or how you felt. Some are investigational - where they are testing a new drug or treatment for celiac disease. Some require gluten ingestion, some don’t.
For the next 30 days, I am going to post everything I eat on FB at @phatceliac and instagram at @afatceliac. I started today.
Refractory celiac disease or RCD is rarely diagnosed. Today's study demonstrates why RCD is so rare. The study demonstrates that gluten exposure is often the culprit in ongoing celiac disease symptoms.
Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI) and celiac disease may be common cohorts. Today we will discuss the pancreas functions, what EPI is, and what the research says about celiac and EPI.
In my mind, gluten free means any food item free from any gluten containing ingredient. However, that probably isn't good enough for everyone. So, the United States Food and Drug Administration clarified the definition of gluten free. Today is all about labels!
Gluten free food boredom is a real thing. Many times, those of us with food issues like to stick to the same foods because we know they are safe and we won't get sick. I think this is both good and bad.
Things are going well. Rotation of celiac safe meals and restaurants are standard in the house. Grocery shopping is easy because you can real labels like a champ. Symptoms are under control. Then the doubt seems in - is the diagnosis correct? Do I really have celiac? Could they have gotten it wrong?
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?
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.
