Mike and Cam, again joined by Mike’s wife Ellen, dive into part 2 of Winter News and Notes, talking about a very promising phase three drug study. They also get to more of your incredible emails and the show ends with Mike giving Ellen a very “cheesy” challenge.
Mike’s wife and the show’s producer, Ellen, joins Mike and Cam to read some of the fantastic letters from our amazing listeners! Today, they discuss the shocking story about a wife and her husband’s blood test mix up, plus an email looking for answers about when being on the gluten free diet isn’t enough. Join us next week in Part 2 as we discuss more of your emails and share news of a very promising study.
The Celiac Project Podcast is excited to help with a big announcement! Mike and Cam are joined by Cutting Costs for Celiacs founder, Lexie Van Den Heuvel, and COO of GIG, Channon Quinn as they share that GIG will be taking Lexie’s Wisconsin-based non-profit, which she began as a teenager, nationally. She and Channon explain the process of how GIG plans to support Lexie’s mission to help folks with celiac who are struggling to get by on a much grander scale.
The “Big Game” is this weekend so we invited Sam and Brian to join this week’s show! We get you ready by tasting a couple of ciders and beers and talk about our game day favorite foods. The discussion quickly turns to beer cheese, Welsh Rarebit, Nachos and something called Schmooey on Toast. It might sound cheesy, but is everything just better with cheese? Grab a cold one and decide for yourself as we get you ready for Sunday’s “Big Game!”
The mind/gut connection is powerful and very real, especially with those who have celiac disease and other related GI conditions. Mike and Cam sit down with Dr. Alyse Bedell of the University of Chicago, who specializes in this phenomenon, to talk with us about her approach in treating patients who are seeking relief. Dr. Bedell shares her advice for our listeners who are struggling with some of these issues.
Last week, Mike and Cam had a blast reacting in real time to the survey questions from the latest edition of the Gluten Free Buyers Guide, without first knowing the results. There were some shockers! Tune in to Part 2, where these questions and results get even crazier!
The latest edition of the Gluten Free Buyers Guide published a fascinating survey of around 600 readers. Mike and Cam don’t know the results, so they decide to go through the survey blindly and give their answers and prediction of how other celiacs answered. They had so much fun it became a two part show!
We celebrate our 5th year Anniversary of producing the podcast by each sharing our five takeaways over the duration of the show. We also celebrate the numerous incredible guests and thank our wonderful loyal listeners for continuing to listen, interact and support the work we do. Looking forward to a great 2021!
As we crawl to the end of 2020, we thought it would be appropriate to toast its much-anticipated end with Ghost Pepper Saison Beer made by Ghost Fish. Reflecting on the strange year that was, it’s fitting that Cam shares his mom’s recent experience with COVID and the puzzling test results in their home. Ending on a sweet note, we look ahead to what we believe will be a much better 2021, toasting our listeners with a tasty Carmel Cocoa Cider by Stem. Happy New Year to all!
Mike and Cam have an illuminating conversation with Dr. Ritu Verma from the University of Chicago Celiac Center. Dr. Verma shares her unique perspective on treating celiac disease not only as a doctor, but as a parent of two children with celiac disease. Dr. Verma talks about her holistic approach to treating patients because she knows firsthand that moving forward with a celiac disease diagnosis is not a one size fits all proposition. She also shares her thoughts on the U of C’s recent Autoimmunity and Beyond symposium.
