This whole having chronic headaches thing sucks. I am in some of the worst pain that I have been in and school is only a month away….gulps……Good news, the NHL starts in 60 days and the WHL’s training camp is in 20 days.
For someone who has had Celiac for all of their life (me) this is wonderful. I really wish that more things where clearly labeled, especially medicine. I have had medicine where they sworn in places that it didn’t contain milk (another thing that I can’t have) but it did. So then, for weeks/months, I had ear pains along with my chronic headaches! It was miserable!
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration set a final standard on Friday to clearly define what the term “gluten-free” means on food labels.
The new regulation is targeted to help the estimated 3 million Americans who have celiac disease, a chronic inflammatory auto-immune disorder that can affect the lining of the small intestine when gluten is consumed. Gluten is a protein composite found in wheat, rye, barley and crossbreeds of these grassy grains.
“Adherence to a gluten-free diet is the key to treating celiac disease, which can be very disruptive to everyday life,” said FDA Commissioner Margaret A. Hamburg, in the release. “The FDA’s new ‘gluten-free’ definition will help people with this condition make food choices with confidence and allow them to better manage their health.”
