Although this commentary is great PR for the gluten free diet as a whole, it was over focused on celiac disease and misleading for those with gluten sensitivity.  Let’s break down the message:

  • The good doctor gave a 4 second blurb about gluten intolerance basically ignoring its existence.  Most GI doctors will call you crazy and refer you to a psychiatrist if you mention gluten sensitivity without the presence of celiac disease.
  • She recommended a basket full of processed garbage to help the sick patients recover.
  • For a leading research center physician, she over emphasized the biopsy as a tool to get a diagnosis despite the fact that this test is completely flawed.
  • The Chicago Celiac Research Dept. is the same group that attempted to get Fox News to retract an interview with Dr. Osborne discussing gluten sensitivity.
  • On a positive note – they are doing a free blood screening.  Unfortunately, these lab tests are tremendously flawed and tend to mislead people when the results are negative.

Save yourself the confusion!  Watch this tutorial on gluten sensitivity vs. celiac disease…

    i cant believe this crap!!! i had the biopsy done not once but 2x, never caught it..never once came back positive, the blood work for me did come back positive, now for my daughter it came back neg. now when i got diag. nobody had it in my family, now we have close to 30 family members that have it…and i didnt have the usual symptoms, i had the weight gain..bone pains constipation, worst tummy pains ever, very severe asthma, reoccuring illnesses..went to dr. i dont know how many times, left with antidepressant rx…knew it wasnt that..took 2 1/2 yrs. 112lbs plus later, then get told this is my new life…and when you are first being diag. the basket is nice but they should highly recommend you not to eat that yet for at least a month to 2 months so your tummy has a chance to heal, it fresh food…not packaged…processed, and this also includes oats, granted oats dont have the protien, but they are slmost always processed with wheat rye and barley..so cross contamination…which wasnt discussed either..maybe instead of having all these drs. on here, which i have found not one that knows really any more than i do, in fact much less, they should have a celiac patient or two on there…we live it and breath it!!!!
