I only resort to saying "I'm allergic to wheat" when ordering in a restaurant.
1) It takes too much time to explain, and
2) Most people get that "allergic" is not a good thing, and
3) They don't care about my personal problems, only what affects them - and they don't want me getting sick in their restaurant!

Anyone else who asks, I give them the whole spiel, because I look at it as another opportunity to educate! And you never know - they might know someone who has the same problem and later they can say, "Hey! I know someone who knows all about that!"

What I understand of this "pill", from another topic on this site a while back, it only works if you have a wheat allergy not Celiac disease. The two are totally different, but often get confused even here on these boards. I myself stopped referring to my disease as a allergy, which makes it sound much less than what it really is.

Yup...not real "hopeful" language. We're better off sticking to strict "abstinence" for now, lol! Oh, well...it was worth investigating just for the knowledge of what is going on out there!

I love how they couch it in such ambiguous terms:
"According to the researchers, if a full-scale trial confirms the results, people with gluten intolerance and celiac disease might be able to safely stray from their strict gluten-free diets on occasion."

"IF", "MIGHT", "ON OCCASION"... in other words, don't get too excited!

Until I see something announced on a place like Celiac.com, I would be very wary of something that claims to do that. Especially after reading Danna Korn's book and the information regarding the advances in science, etc. and basically "don't hold your breath."
I think that if this were true, we would hear about it somewhere else besides a company that is selling it... But that's just me, being skeptical. And I value my health and well-being to risk being anyone's Guinea pig!!

Has anyone out there seen this product or know anything about it? My sister sent me this in an e-mail this afternoon. We are both diagnosed CD and also trying to cut back on dairy consumption, and she ran across this and asked me to run it through the team for scrutiny. It's a product called "Gluten Digest V-Caps" that purports to contain an enzyme..."dipeptidyl peptidase IV"...among others, that breaks down and "digests" certain "difficult to digest proline containing peptides" from grains and dairy products...like gluten, for example. She found it at http://www.nowfoods.com Sounds risky to me... emoticon Thanks for any assistance!
