Oats are naturally gluten free; however, oats commonly contain gluten, possibly as much as 10%. Gluten grains may grow in nearby fields. Then when the seeds blow over to the oat crops, they grow together. In addition, transportation vehicles and processing equipment may contain remnants of gluten-containing grains.

As many of you know, I do not have a celiac disease diagnosis. My doctor suspects that I may be celiac. If I were diagnosed, I would participate in the celiac study that is outlined in this article. If you still get a reaction to gluten cross contamination and for other reasons, check it out and see if you qualify. – Carla Continue reading “Celiac Drug May Prevent Reaction to Gluten Cross Contamination”

Though this site is mainly about gluten free reicpes, celiac disease and celiac research is extremely important to me as many of readers are afflicted with this disease and there is no known cure.
Alvine Pharmaceuticals is conducting a study named CeliAction Study and is seeking volunteers diagnosed with celiac disease to further celiac research. Participants remain on a gluten-free diet during the entire trial. To learn more about this study, read the below information and then visit their website, CeliActionStudy.com.

Carla often hears from readers that have been denied health insurance with a pre-existing condition such as celiac disease. The gluten free diet is expensive enough without having to worry about health insurance. The United States (US) and Europe (EU) have different laws regarding health insurance. In the US, it’s about to get easier. Read on to learn more. Continue reading “Celiac Disease: Health Insurance with a Pre-existing Condition Gets Easier”
With the entire month of May being National Celiac Disease Awareness Month, I thought it would helpful for those not familiar with celiac disease to not only learn a little about it, but for those with celiac disease to learn more. Below you will discover information about refactory celiac disease and non-responsive celiac disease. If you have any form of gluten intolerance, this is a must read, as I go over a study that talks about how those with non-responsive celiac disease finally found an answer. This information will be beneficial to anyone with gluten intolerance. Please do not meet the note in the lower section. Continue reading “Non-Responsive Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance”
We know that celiac disease is not the ‘rare’ disorder that I was taught it was at school. We know that at 1% incidence, it is the most common life-long disorder in the US and Europe. And we know, as of recent research, that the 1% incidence actually increases to 4 and 5% as the population ages. Therefore, we have a fairly common disorder on our hands that is poorly diagnosed. Continue reading “Hope on the Horizon for Celiac Disease”
I try to stay on the cutting edge of research as it relates to celiac disease and gluten sensitivity. Occasionally a study emerges that just doesn’t seem to ‘add up’ when compared to other studies and just good common sense.
Often it turns out that the study is perfectly valid, but the problem lies in the conclusions others are drawing from the study. In other words, it’s the interpretation that is at fault. My reason for bringing this up is that there is much data available on the Internet Continue reading “How to Interpret Confusing Celiac Research”
