This week's topic is The Washington Post article: How I told my happy, healthy daughter about her medical diagnosis, about the celiac diagnosis of an 11 year old girl, sending her mother into a state of panic and denial, and wondering whether to even tell her the news! Mike and Cam talk it out.
Mike and Cam are joined by their guest Ellen Frolichstein. Ellen shares her very unique insights of being both the wife and mother of two individuals with celiac disease. In addition, Ellen talks in depth about her own struggles with gluten and eventual diagnosis of gluten intolerance.
Mike and Cam have a spirited discussion about some of the recent articles about the gluten free lifestyle, sharing their thoughts on the way that the media and commercials portray the gluten free lifestyle.
We have our first guest, Sam (Mike's nephew) and we learn some fascinating facts about him. Sam was diagnosed with celiac disease almost 3 years ago, despite being symptom free. In addition, Sam is a life-long vegetarian and a college freshman. He talks about the challenges of eating gluten free safely at college and has great tips for those who are going to be starting college soon.
