    No.

    A person who suffers a food intolerance is not allergic to that particular food.

    However, some people, particularly children, are allergic to certain foods.

    Common culprits include:

    • strawberries
    • peanuts
    • milks products
    • eggs
    • gluten

    When someone eats a food to which he or she is allergic, there’s usually a fairly swift and obvious response. Allergic reactions can be caused by exposure to a very, very small amount of a substance; for instance, foods containing just a trace of peanuts or a minuscule amount of seafood can cause anaphylaxis in people allergic to them.

    This is not the case in food intolerance.

    Common allergic reactions

      These include a skin rash, often similar to hives. Other responses include asthma or hay fever. Very rarely, an allergic reaction to foods can be life-threatening, due to a severe response called Anaphylaxis.

      How about Skin Testings?

      Injections into the skin of proteins prepared from suspected causes of the allergy can help discover possible culprits. These tests should be administered by a doctor with a special interest in this area: This could be a GP, an allergist or an immunologist.

      Going Gluten free does not mean you are doomed to eating your own home-cooked foods day after day. Gluten Sensitivity is not a handicap - it is a condition. And just as people who have diabetes and food allergies learn to deal with their conditions, so can you.

      Asking questions and speaking up about your dietary needs are important. Restaurants are very accommodating of people with food allergies.

      The customer just has to make those needs known.

      Yes - I know. Gluten Sensitivity is not an allergy. But when you go to a restaurant for a meal, your goal is to eat a good, healthy meal. Meeting that goal is contingent on communicating your needs. Your waiter and the chef may not understand the term “Gluten Sensitivity” . But they will understand “Wheat allergy”

      You will find that you can eat in restaurants - even in restaurants you tipically associate with gluten-containing foods, such as Italian restaurants. You simply have to choose your foods wisely, ask questions and let your needs to be known.

      Take a look on our Celiac Cards, they are a great way to self-explain the celiac condition.

      Eating out is fun. But when you have gluten sensitivity you sometimes feel your choices are limited. Not all chefs understand the challenges Coeliacs face every day and this, of course, can also be tricky.

      Similarly, when travelling interstate or overseas the last thing you want is to eat the wrong foods that will cause you problems.

      In our role supporting those that have gluten sensitivity F.G. Roberts has produced a simple explanatory card you can carry with you at all times.

      • You can ask waiters to ‘Please show this to your chef.’
      • You can carry the card with you when you travel and even have it translated into the language of the foreign country you are visiting.

      Download the card now and print it on hard board or laminate it and carry it with you always.

      Australians everywhere are being asked to check on the state of their MOJOs this week in a bid to raise awareness about coeliac disease.

      ‘Is your MOJO Missing?’
      is the theme of a cheeky new public education campaign about the typical symptoms of coeliac disease which include unexplained and persistent tiredness, bloating and/or tummy upsets.

      The campaign is being launched today by The Coeliac Research Foundation to help improve diagnosis rates of the disease which affects one in 100 Australians.

      Ms Kristine Ash, Executive Officer of the Fund, says that 75 per cent of people who have coeliac disease are not diagnosed and don’t know they have it.

      She said there is a pressing need for people to become aware of the symptoms of coeliac disease because untreated, it can result in liver disease, cancer, osteopororis and infertility, especially among men.

      She said it was better to be safe than sorry and urged anyone who has persistent tiredness, bloating, diarrhoea and/or constipation for no reason to ask their doctor for coeliac tests which are fast, simple and accurate.

      Listeners can call the Coeliac Hotline on 1300 458 836 for more information about coeliac disease.

      To contact Kristine Ash for a news quote, please call 0412 399 001.

      COELIAC AWARENESS WEEK

      IS YOUR MOJO MISSING?

      Tired? Bloated? Suffering from diarrhoea or constipation?

      You may have coeliac disease.

      Diagnosis and treatment is easy with the MOJO guide.

      Make an appointment with your Doctor. Organise coeliac tests Judge the results with your doctor Omit gluten from your diet if your doctor advises it

      Coeliac disease is easy to diagnose & treat - so make a MOJO date today!

      About coeliac disease

      A hereditary condition, coeliac disease is a permanent, autoimmune disorder where gluten (found in wheat, rye, barley and oats) causes the body to produce antibodies which destroy the lining of the small bowel.

      In those with untreated coeliac disease, the ‘villi’ present in the bowel, which are tiny, finger like projections which absorb nutrients, become inflamed and flattened. Imagine a shag pile carpet versus a threadbare carpet and you have a good idea of what happens to the villi of untreated coeliacs. Damaged in this way, they are unable to absorb the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients we all need for healthy growth and bodily function. Sufferers become literally ‘starved’ and their bodies can’t function properly.

      Typically, they experience extreme fatigue, constipation and/or diarrhoea, bloating, headaches, anaemia, joint pain and itchy skin conditions.

      Because it causes severe, long term malnourishment, untreated coeliac disease can also lead to serious conditions in later life such as infertility, osteoporosis, liver disease and cancer.

      Diagnosis is via a straightforward blood test, which, if positive, is followed by a small bowel biopsy. Treatment is simple - by strictly eliminating gluten from their diet, most coeliacs will be able to lead a healthy, pain free, active life.

      Coeliacs are totally intolerant of gluten - just 50mg of gluten eaten daily, which is the equivalent of a piece of bread the size of a baby’s fingernail, damages the small bowel, so proper medical advice is important in managing the condition.

      Self diagnosis is strongly discouraged.

      Great Campaign, GlutenFreehealth.net and FG Roberts are proudly together trying to increase awareness on Celiac / Coeliac Disease.

      Celiac Disease and kids and Coeliac Disease in children

      The symptoms of celiac disease in children generally become apparent three to five months after first consuming foods that contain gluten, although for a few cases the interval may be as short as one month.
      Several of the experts who advise on infant health say solid foods should not be introduced to a baby’s diet until almost five months old and gluten-containing cereal should be avoided during the first six months of life.
      Older children with more subtle symptoms of poor appetite, poor growth, and anemia are more difficult to diagnose because there are many other reasons for the lack of growth in childhood.
      Clinical symptoms often diminish or disappear during puberty [adolescence], although biochemical or morphological abnormalities of the celiac condition may persist. More active symptoms will reappear again in early adulthood, after the period in which the immune system appears to “give more of their attention” to sexual development.
      While the adolescent may feel that he or she has “grown out of the disease,” the actuality is that the condition continues and must [should] be treated with the same strict gluten free diet.
