Dear Gluten Dude: How do I convince my son to take his celiac disease seriously?

August 9, 2021 | 16 Comments

More celiac snake oil…from a ‘Longevity Coach’ (seriously)

June 30, 2021 | 2 Comments

I’m going to start this rare night-time post with a disclaimer: I’m in a beyond pissy mood. Nothing seems to be going my way lately, and today I hit peak frustration. So my post may be more “colorful” than usual. You’ve been warned. I […]

May 13, 2021 | 18 Comments

In 2007, after a year of constant stomach pain and losing 15 pounds on an already pretty slim fit, I finally listened to Mrs. Dude and went to see a GI. (The lesson as usual? Mrs. Dude is always right and me…not so much.) After speaking […]

First of all, a belated Happy Celiac Awareness month. I do believe we’ve made progress in the past years of 1) getting our disease out in the open more; and 2) reducing the number of idiotic gluten-free jokes. I had a friend come visit […]

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.
