p the boiler: I see the "I can eat gluten so it can't be bad and the people that can't eat it are full of shiat crew" has shown up to this thread already to shiat all over it like... well... a person that can't process gluten.


If you can't eat it because you have celiac disease you have my deepest sympathy, that truly sucks. If, however, you won't eat gluten because you're jumping on the bandwagon of some fad diet backed by pseudoscience mumbo-jumbo and feel the need to let everyone in earshot know about it and expect others to cater to your new dietary restrictions, you can eat a dick.

That about clear things up?

/apparently it's impossible to go on a fad diet without becoming really annoyingly vocal and entitled about it.

Only thing worse than the misinformed fad dieters are the idiots who think that just because there are misinformed fad dieters, the disease doesn't exist.

Yeah, gluten does no harm to probably 99% of people, and in fact is actually a wholesome, nutritious thing, but for the 1% or so who have celiac disease, gluten is a very serious concern.

And for ecmoRandomNumbers, who said "First World diseases are fascinating." - the only reason this could be considered a first world disease is because wheat is the staple grain of the western world, where most of the rest of the world lives on rice and manioc.  So, nice try at belittling the poeple who suffer from this disease, but you're a loser.

Jim_Callahan: while it only takes more than 10-12 parts to make Scheu ill for weeks.

My reaction was "well, that's.... fairly useful, I guess?" until I got to this line.

If her case is mild enough that it wasn't even diagnosed until she was in her 60s, it's extremely unlikely that she's anywhere near that sensitive.  It's a relatively fixed sensitivity and it's a congenital defect, so it's not like it could have suddenly gotten worse or she spontaneously "caught" it later.

If she was actually that sensitive to the protein and had gone undiagnosed, she wouldn't be a grandmother, she'd be 40+ years dead.

So... yeah, I would now suspect that the rest of TFA is dodgy pseudocience at best.  You can't tell me a blatant lie and then expect me to trust you on the rest of it.


It's really cute when someone doesn't know what the bloody hell they are talking about then tries to portray themselves as an expert.

Celiac is *triggered,*  not inherent. Some people are sick their whole lives, and some people suddenly are triggered when they're 40+ years old. Could be pregnancy, a gut bug, or something else. Furthermore, her the reason she has refractory celiac is that she was sick so long her intestines have permanent damage.

But go on with your hipster douchebag holier-than-thou tirade. It's adorable to see more people like you and the anti-vaxers who think opinion is more important than actual knowledge.

It doesn't have to be mild. CD is notoriously hard to diagnose because the symptoms are so normal seeming.

You've had a stomach ache? You feel tired for no reason? You're a lot less fat than most people? You only have one of those problems, and not the others, and only sometimes, over your entire life?

"Wow. Call the newspapers."

You may, or may not have serious nutrient deficiencies even though you're eating right, but we don't know because your blood hasn't been tested for all those things?

"Well that would be clear, if we could magically see into the bloodstream of every person on earth."

/there's no obvious case of CD

I work in the food business and it's amazing how many people, pretty much exclusively white collar white people and their housewives, cannot decide whether the gluten-free or whole wheat pizza is the healthier option for that particular day.

/obviously, no pizza at all is the only healthy choice

wildcardjack: Somehow I doubt that gluten or its components are aromatic.


Thanks for your opinion. How long did it take you to get that biochem/canine neuro double PhD?

onzmadi: Scheu's celiac disease had caused a slew of other health disorders, like a vitamin A deficiency caused by fat malabsorption; a connective tissue disorder; hepatitis;


Wait what?

i am pretty sure gluten didn't give her hepatitis


I dunno, considering all the damage it's done to her, I don't see why it wouldn't damage her liver too.

Hepatitis is the swelling of the liver, the viruses are just named for the damage they cause.

It can. "celiac hepatitis" is a thing, I think it's a subset of reactive hepatitis.
