Though the medical community has come a long way in the past 10 years, let’s just say they have a long way to go when it comes to celiac disease?

November 7, 2014 | 40 Comments

We’ve all had our dose of doctor horror stories. Heck…many of you shared your story right here. While I’m grateful for the care I’ve received over the years for the myriad of my health issues and especially grateful for the care Mrs. Dude received […]

Because my audience keeps growing, every once in awhile I’ll post on Facebook an older article that I’ve written. Yesterday, I linked to the Doctor Horror Stories our community has shared. And holy moly…what a response. So many stories…so much heartbreak. And all of […]

Did you know that today is Celiac Awareness Day? That’s right…our disease is so big that we get our own special day to try to spread awareness. Heck, we even get our own month, which happens to be the month of May. (And yes…there […]

Celiac Rant: I Have Been Feeding Poison to My Child for Years

August 14, 2013 | 22 Comments

We need to be our own best advocates. I’ve been saying that for years. We simply cannot trust that the doctors word is final. Because far too often…it’s wrong. Especially when it comes to celiac disease. If you have not already, check out the […]

You're Not Crazy. You May Just Have Celiac Disease.

June 17, 2013 | 53 Comments

We’ve all heard the doctor horror stories (and if you haven’t, read them here…disturbing to say the least). We all know that celiac disease continues to be misdiagnosed and that the average time to get accurately diagnosed is 6-10 years. We all know that […]

Celiac Awareness Must Start With the Medical Community

May 30, 2013 | 119 Comments

As we wind down Celiac Awareness Month (and what a month it’s been!), there is one aspect of our disease that seems to get overlooked far too often: the role the medical community plays. Or perhaps I should say the lack of the role […]

December 20, 2012 | 41 Comments

Crohns. IBS. Acid Reflux. Hypochondria. Depression. Stress. Psychosis. The list is endless of all of the misdiagnoses that the celiac community has suffered. It’s complete and utter BS that this still goes on. The following comment was left on my “Hey celiacs…we’re trendy” blog […]

Celiac Rant: The Medical Community Has Abandoned Me

December 3, 2012 | 47 Comments

When I was diagnosed five years ago with celiac disease, my doctor nailed it right away. I didn’t really think twice about it at the time. He’s a doctor. I was a sick patient. He did his job. But since I’ve started this blog, […]

Celiac Rant: Where's My Follow-Up Care?

September 19, 2012 | 66 Comments

Forgive me celiacs for I have sinned. It has been two weeks since my last celiac rant. Yes…I am a bit backed up on the rants. For those who have sent one to me and I have not published, my apologies. It’s been a […]

Gluten Dude: The mobile app that puts your safety first!

All the tools you need for a simpler gluten-free journey, brought to you by a passionate celiac disease advocate who understands the challenges you face.

Who I am. And who I'm not.

Who I am. And who I'm not.

I AM someone who's been gluten-free since 2007 due to a diagnosis of severe celiac disease. I'm someone who can steer you in the right direction when it comes to going gluten-free. And I'm someone who will always give you the naked truth about going gluten free.

I AM NOT someone who embraces this gluten-free craziness. I didn’t find freedom, a better life or any of that other crap when I got diagnosed. With all due respect to Hunter S. Thompson, I found fear and loathing of an unknown world. But if I can share my wisdom, tell my stories and make the transition easier on you, I’ve done my job.
