Happy Fat Tuesday! I hope everyone enjoys a gluten free treat on this day traditionally celebrated with fatty, rich foods. The Red Bandana Bakery near me in Bethesda, MD is selling gluten free King Cake - a traditional Mardi Gras dessert. Any bakeries near you doing something special?
In the first part of my recap of the Celiac Project Screening Q and A with Samra Blanchard, MD in February, I wanted to share something that really surprised me. According to Dr. Blanchard, if you have Celiac Disease and react to getting glutened quickly, you have Gluten Sensitivity. By quickly, she meant within a few hours of gluten consumption. For those with only Celiac, it takes longer for the autoimmune response to be noticed. She mentioned that patients who report quick responses are noted in their medical chart to have both.
This was only one of the incredibly enlightening info that came up at our Q and A after the Celiac Project Film screening. Stay tuned for more! To hear Dr. Blanchard's full, recorded response on this topic please email me at: email@example.com. I would be happy to sent you a copy.
