Sometimes I feel poorly. Monday was the perfect example. Nausea, fatigue, some gastrointestinal distress (but not major), and just an in general not feeling well. But the issue is, I didn’t eat out nor did I eat any heavily processed gluten free foods for the four days prior.
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.
The smart researchers at Harvard University are performing a long-term study on children at risk for celiac disease. Scientists obtain blood and stool samples for these infants through childhood at regular intervals. The study goal is to determine markers that indicate the beginning of celiac disease.
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.
OMG - I have been remiss. I have not written about the FODMAP diet extensively. Today, I will rectify that misake. I will talk about what the diet is, why it is good, and how could it help with elusive glutening-like symptoms but you know you didn't eat gluten.
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.
Sorry everyone, I've been missing writing about celiac disease. With the election, life, a new job, and a tween that is making me crazy, I've been remiss in keeping up with this blog.
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!
