On this episode I speak with Ellen Bayens about articles, topics and science that has been published over the past month about celiac disease and the gluten free diet. We talk about why a new drug treatment study was abandoned in the Stage 3 phase, as well as research into how science will eventually tackle and treat celiac disease. Artificial intelligence is being prepared to help doctors diagnose celiac disease - with 300 symptoms and normally many years of testing prior to diagnosis, this new tool may change the diagnosis landscape. Mental health is in the news these days, with the stress of covid and the economy, and a recent study has looked at the rates of anxiety, depression and ADHD in the celiac population, particularly in youth. Dr. Diane Mager of the University of Alberta is heading a team researching the specific dietary needs of children newly diagnosed with celiac disease. They are reaching out to the community for participation in two studies, one for children and families and the other to find family friendly recipes to use as part of their resource package. Here are the links to find out more information - https://conquer-studies.weebly.com/ and redcap.link/GFcookbook.
Ellen had the tale of two restaurants, one that had gluten free items on their menu, but they are not actually gluten free and safe for celiacs, and the other restaurant that is going to great lengths to ensure their many gluten free offerings are safe for us.
Selena DeVries is back with her Instagram post about 18 snack bars that are gluten free and safe to eat.
Ellen has highlighted some of my recent podcasts including my chat with Christine Nesbitt as well as the deep dive Nicole Byrom and I took into understanding everything on a food label that wasn’t the ingredients.
