Newly Diagnosed?

Interested in help from Dr. Oz?  Go here and enter your information.  Dr. Oz is doing a show on Celiac Disease on December 10, 2009. 

I just have to say that since Jon & I were diagnosed in 2006, the gluten-free diet & diagnosing Celiac Disease has come such a long way.  This makes me all warm & fuzzy inside for more that just 1 reason.  Most importantly, I hate for people to suffer if they don’t have to.  If gluten is making you sick in one way, shape or form, a gluten-free diet can only help.  Secondly, the availability of gluten-free food in grocery stores and restaurants has just exploded.  I can only imagine what it was like 10 years ago, let alone 20. 

So, kudos to all who work hard to get the word out there.  There are so many people & companies that are making the gluten-free diet easier to follow & going to great lengths to get the word out about Celiac Disease.  I even saw a letter in my January Runner’s World this morning from a reader!  She wrote in to thank RW for including quinoa pasta in the list of pastas to eat in the last issue.  Baby steps really do add up.  :)

  1. Look in the mirror – because you’re part of the grass roots effort that’s been going on to get the word out on the need for more access to gluten-free options.

  2. Keep up the great work!
    Dr Oz will do great things to get the word out, and that’s what we need to get more people diagnosed.
    I think the diet has always been good…but now there are more specialty products available. The best thing about it is that it is helping people get back into the kitchen to give cooking a try!
    Best,

    N.B. http://www.glutenfreequiz.com is a noninvasive screening tool people can print out and bring to their doctor to ask about testing.

  3. Hi. :-) You came up as a “Possibly Related Post” on my latest. I do copy editing work for a diagnosed celiac whose hypnotherapy company has just released an MP3 to help people stick to their gluten-free diets. Through June 30th, they’re donating all the proceeds from the program to celiac research! But they’re also making the program available for free for celiacs (and others) who might not be able to afford it.

    Sorry to stop by with a “plug” like this, but I thought you might be interested. (More details about the program and my boss’s Celiac Travel site available at my post.) Keep up the fight to spread information! :-D
