Round Up! Gluten Free, Celiac, and Nutrition News and Goodies

Without further ado-

TEH LINKZ to teh coolness  (AKA-the links to articles you may find interesting and informative.)

By the by, if you missed my last post on uncomplicating healthy gluten free eating, please check it out.  I’m also going to create a flowsheet and add it to Gluten Free and Fit 101. For real.  I think it will make it a bit easier.  I doubt if I can figure it out graphically, but we’ll see.  Also, I completed an excellent interview with Melissa Diane Smith for the GFF podcast which hopefully will go up next week.  Feel free to leave reviews on Itunes if you like the shows!

OK, so that was further ado.  To TEH LINKZ:

On the General Health and Nutrition Front:

  • “Exercise is Medicine” (and a great slots mokescreen for Big Food) There has been quite a bit of discussion lately regarding the sponsorship given by major food and beverage manufacturers.  Yoni Freedhoff always offers interesting observations, and this one does not disappoint.  An example once again, you are your own best advocate.  Learn and make independent and informed decisions.
  • Which incidentally, is why I use THIS beauteous desk since I work at home now:
Treadmill desk for the win!

Treadmill desk for the win!

More on that to come.

On the Celiac/Gluten Free Front:

  • Jefferson Adams on takes a look at Long-Term Histological Follow Up of People with Celiac Disease.  The take home from this study is that the rate of healing depends on the severity of damage done to the small intestine prior to diagnosis, and  compliance with the gluten free diet.  Seems kind of  ‘well, duh’, but it’s really not.  People seem to think they should or can feel better immediately, and as so many things in life, the answer is “it depends.”  Summing up, from the article, “These results shows histological recovery generally takes longer than traditionally thought, and that doctors looking to conduct such follow-ups might do well to factor in the patient’s age at diagnosis, the initial disease score, as well as the level of compliance with a gluten free diet.”

(and it doesn’t even mention Chelsea Clinton’s cake!)

Until next time!  If you have come across something interesting you’d like to share, please do so in the comments.  Don’t be shy!

  1. Okay, that desk is crazy…. and EXACTLY what I need. I work from home, too, and find it slightly precarious to balance my laptop on the elliptical. I have to look in to that.
    Great round-up as usual!

    Hey Kim!
    I have to say, it’s pretty cool. I’m now walking or standing instead of sitting for 8 hours. I’ll be doing a whole post on it, probably next week. If you or your husband are handy at all, you can do it on the cheap. They make prefab ones that are more expensive too.
