  1. Hi! I’ve really enjoyed your podcast, even the episodes that don’t contain much that directly applies to me (like this one). I enjoy listening to the two of you interact and share stories and experiences from your lives. I appreciate what you are doing.

    When discussing food sensitivities in this episode, there was one comment I wanted to discuss. When discussing following a gluten-free diet, Sarah mentioned that she “totally cheats” sometimes. I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2009. Once I worked out how highly genetic it is, we had our younger two children tested and were shocked to discover in 2010 they were both had active celiac disease, though they did not yet have the extensive villi damage and nutritional deficiencies I had when diagnosed. They were in 7th and 12th grade at the time.

    A lot of things have improved since then. The FDA has issued strict labeling guidelines. And the awareness, which was always better here in Austin for all sorts of dietary needs than in many places, has gotten a lot better. The attention “gluten-free” has received has been a mixed bag, though. On the one hand, it means more people understand what it means. On the other hand, it’s often perceived as a dietary choice and sometimes even a fad. I know and have heard from plenty of waiters their experiences of having customers make a big deal about ordering “gluten free” only to see them chowing down on the breadsticks or taking bites from other, non gluten-free plates.

    These days my children and I may not have to explain what “gluten-free” means as often, but we often feel forced to add that we have celiac disease, perhaps explain what that is, and stress that gluten from a mistake or cross-contamination will still make us sick. And since it’s an autoimmune disease, the acute effect (if we have a clear one) isn’t immediate the way it is with an allergy. We may not know (or worse, have a feeling something is wrong, but not sure from where or how) until well after we’ve left. But any exposure activates the autoimmune response, which is basically your body attacking itself.

    We have no problem with people who do not have celiac disease following a gluten free diet if it helps them. And some of the research studies they are doing now are showing that non-celiac gluten sensitivity may be a lot more prevalent than people thought. But when we eat out, even though we are very careful about the places we choose to trust and will simply not eat if we have too much doubt about the safety of the food, we are wholly reliant on the people at the restaurant taking our need seriously.

    So we hope that those who follow a gluten free diet, don’t have celiac disease, and choose to “cheat” will do so in a way that doesn’t diminish the care and attention to detail in the attitudes of those on whom we rely when we do eat out. If you have celiac disease, you can’t cheat. Ever. Even once you have cleared the autoimmune response and have it under control, a single exposure will reactivate the autoimmune response and that can take up to 4-6 weeks to clear from your system.

    And if you do not take celiac disease seriously, it will eventually kill you in a very slow, insidious, and painful way. So please, when you’re in a public setting, try to keep that in mind. In other contexts, it doesn’t matter as much. But we need waiters and chefs to take us at our word. And it gets tiring to feel like you have to go through your medical history and explain how your disease works every time you want to order a meal.
