Cam is slightly disturbed by the results of a positive celiac blood test even after being hyper-vigilant about his gluten free diet. He talks openly to Mike about the test and they speculate on what might be the cause. Cam also talks about the more extensive tests he has coming up and his hope to get some answers about some of his ongoing health issues.

The Celiac Project Podcast – Ep 56: 2 Guys Talking Gluten Free

Mike and Cam discuss the need for more consistency for gluten free labeling, and the need for a worldwide standard level of accepted parts per million. They look at the fact that there are some promising changes on the horizon as scientists have come up with a “universal gluten cross-contamination checklist” for use in the food service industries.

The Celiac Project Podcast – Ep 55: 2 Guys Talking Gluten Free

A couple of weeks ago (on EP 52) Mike and Cam discussed a new column on Tampa Bay’s Creative Loafing website called, “#BecauseGluten: Me? Celiac? Impossible!” This week we have the and Arts and Entertainment Editor, Cathy Salustri on to discuss her frustration being diagnosed with celiac disease and the challenges she faces adapting to the gluten-free lifestyle. She talks candidly to us about how she went from not wanting to share her diagnosis with anyone, to deciding to make it the focus of her column.

The Celiac Project Podcast EP 54: 2 Guys Talking Gluten Free

Ellen joins the podcast to tell us what it is like to be severely gluten intolerant and living gluten free without having celiac disease. We also talk about a new acronym that has burst onto the scene, PWAGs: “People without celiac disease avoiding gluten.” We dig into a Washington Post article talking about PWAGs and the idea that the gluten free movement is less of a fad than was previously thought. You don’t want to miss the fascinating discussion that ensues.

The Celiac Project Podcast – Ep 52: 2 Guys Talking Gluten Free

Mike and Cam dig deep into two recent blog posts that could not have taken a more different approach about what it means to be gluten free. In the post “#BecauseGluten: Me? Celiac? Impossible!,” published in Creative Loafing Tampa Bay, Cathy Salistri talks about the horror of her recent celiac diagnosis. She clearly is not happy being stuck with the label of what she calls, “a trendy disease.”

We contrast this post with Fawn Burgess’ article entitled “Lovin’ that Gluten-Free Feeling.” Fawn speaks about how gluten saved her dog’s life and that she is now feeling the health benefits (despite not have celiac disease) going gluten free herself.
