Re:A coeliac diet is really healthier than a normal diet: from Maureen on 2010-07-26

I have been diagoned with GF needs for Celiac. I am also permitted no dairy as anything from a cow has proven dairy products of any sort to only add to or aggravate the flip from diahhrea to constipation. I don't have Crouns but attacks of uncontrollable bowel disorder are embarrassing and frustrating. I am a 54 year old woman-single low income Mom of a 19 year old who is developing stomach/digestive disorder-compliments of drinking beer and constantly throwing up(oh well). I can't pronounce half the stuff to bake with and the safest thing I can use for all seems to be water. So much frustration,pain,and aniety over eating. Can you help me?? Living in a small town in Moncton New Brunswick Canada the acces an ability to get into this has been depressing

Re Coeliac and wheat intollerance: from georgette on 2010-08-26

I have the same thing - heartburn for years... indigestion, they all say take your acid blocker meds, which i've been on for almost 20 years.. I'm 42 and very worried that they are making me sicker.

I had a negative test as well.... I just started a gluten free diet, my stomach aches feel better, but I'm still very very lethargic --- i was diagnosed over the years with iron def anemia, b12 and vitamin D deficiencies..

It's soooo aggrevating when they don't believe you aren't feeling well.

Coeliac disease research - are you interested in taking part: from Helen on 2010-09-20

Are you interested in taking part in a research project about coeliac disease?

The research aims to find out whether dietitians gain knowledge of what it is like to live with coeliac disease, through their interaction with coeliac patients. The research started as a dissertation for my Masters degree at Cardiff University, but I am now conducting further research in order to get the results published.

Participating in the research involves answering a few questions via email about what it is like to live with coeliac disease and providing some basic demographic data.

You can participate in this research if you have coeliac disease, are over the age of 16 years old, currently live in the UK, and have been diagnosed by endoscopy (tube passed down the throat into the stomach and intestine) at least one year ago.

If you meet the criteria and would like to take part in the research, or would like more information, please reply to: BoyceHL@Cardiff.ac.uk

Many thanks for reading this post,

I have contacted Helen to verify this request and can confirm that this is valid research and her University credentials are bona fide.

I hope that some of you will respond to her request.


links between coeliac and diabetic: from Jane on 2010-11-22

Have you looked at the Vitamin D deficiency debate, with regard to auto-immune diseases? Both coeliac and diabetes are auto-immune. I'm not a medic so I can't really give an opinion, but the Vitamin D thing (not enough sunlight in the UK etc....) makes very interesting reading. Oliver Gillie is one scientist who is researching in this area

I have not been able to locate any studies reported in the medical literature that suggest that a lack of vitamin D could contribute to the cause of Coeliac condition.

There is a lot of published evidence that the problems with nutrient absorbtion associated with the coeliac condition can result in a greater risk of vitamin D deficiency.

Re Coeliac and wheat intollerance: from Victoria on 2010-12-04

yes definitely - perhas mainly because i suddenly stopped eating biscuits, cake, which happened every day. Also breakfast became complicated so i often skipped it. Now however I have found GF substitutes and my weight has probably gone up a little bit. But i'm still at least a dress size down

Overweight coeliac: from Lee B on 2011-01-11

I have just discovered from my doc that I have a Vit D deficiency common in couliacs and this causes fatigue. Perhaps get a check at the Dr with a bloodtest

Re: Overweight coeliac: from RUTH WOOD on 2011-01-14

I gained weight some years ago through eating the wrong things and changing my job to be more sedentary. Since being diagnosed 5 years ago, I can now eat the things I've never been able to before - mainly dairy products!! I started to conquer my weight gain, then got struck down with an unusual form of MS, so now exercise is difficult as my mobility has been affected. So back to square one, with the weight piling on again. I've been tempted to try different diets - lost loads of weight on Cambridge - but when I came off, back came the weight! Have run out of ideas as am eating less, eating healthily and trying to keep my blood sugar level up as I suffer from low sugar levels (and low blood pressure). Any ideas would be welcome - I've run out
