Is it Time to Revise the Criteria Used to Diagnose Celiac Disease?
Celiac.com 06/03/2008 - Among the main things doctors look for when they're trying to make a classic diagnosis of celiac disease are small intestinal mucosal membrane villous atrophy and inflammation. However, the latest research indicates that these criteria are possibly too narrow, leading to a lack of diagnosis and treatment of people with celiac disease. If this turn out to be the case, then far more people than previously imagined may suffer from celiac disease and not even know it.

Traveling and Eating Gluten-Free Meals at Small or Moving Restaurants
Celiac.com 06/03/2008 - As you travel and experience the sites of the world you are going to have to stop at a restaurant or destination that has a small kitchen. Let me tell you a little bit about myself so you can understand that I also started in a small kitchen.

AT-1001 Shows Promise for those with Celiac Disease, But Likely not a Sliver Bullet
Celiac.com 05/27/2008 - People with celiac disease know all too well that the only effective treatment at present is faithfully following a gluten-free diet. There's been a lot of talk about various therapies and enzyme treatments that would allow people with celiac disease to return to a normal diet. Talk to anyone who suffers from celiac disease and they'll likely have a personal horror story about a time when they had an unhappy episode of cross-contamination.

Traveling Gluten-free - Are Gluten-Free Menus Good or Bad?
Celiac.com 05/25/2008 - When traveling should you go to a restaurant with a gluten-free menu or not--that is the question. It is important to let you know that because of your comments I can come up with discussions like this, so please keep them coming. Let's talk about gluten-free menus (this is, of course, only my opinion).

Traveling Abroad and Eating Gluten-free
Celiac.com 05/20/2008 - I am going to be honest--I have not traveled outside the U.S.A. except for Mexico and Canada. When I went to Mexico it was on a cruise ship, so that meant I could eat on the ship. I would take snacks to tide me over or get a bag of chips. Hopefully I will one day be able to tour the world and educate everyone on how to make true gluten-free meals for all of us. I also hope that my when the time is right I will go on such trips with my loving wife. So I will tell you how I would approach a trip to another country and you can decide if this is worth a try.

Traveling and Eating Gluten-Free at Restaurants
Celiac.com 05/16/2008 - Knowing the Kitchen on Your Travels. As you travel there is no way around it--you need to eat at a restaurant. If you are like me, you probably don't look forward towards eating out. I have been trained by some of the finest chefs in the world and there wasn't enough training to prepare me for eating out gluten-free. Don't get me wrong, if I was not celiac I could take the menus apart and know everything necessary to impress my wife and order the right food and wine. Yes I even was involved in wine tasting in Palm Beach Florida.

How to Eat a Gluten-Free Breakfast While Traveling
Celiac.com 05/14/2008 - Staying at a Hotel or Bed and Breakfast with Breakfast Included. With your trip you will have to stay at a hotel or resort. I am going to discuss my thoughts on how to eat and stay safe. I will be talking about breakfast because some hotels and B&B's offer free breakfasts. Lunch and dinner are different subjects that need to be discussed in great length.

Gluten-Free Airline Travel
Celiac.com 05/08/2008 - I am here to help you with your needs as you travel, and to be able to keep the "Gluten Monster" away, so you can enjoy your trip.

Unglued: The Sticky Truth About Wheat, Dairy, Corn and Soy
Approximately 70% of all American calories come from a combination of the following four foods: wheat, dairy, soy and corn - assuming, that is, we exclude calories from sugar. Were it true that these four foods were health promoting, whole-wheat-bread-munching, soy-milk-guzzling, cheese-nibbling, corn-chip having Americans would probably be experiencing exemplary health among the world's nations.
