Does gluten transfer to breastmilk?

My friend’s child, now over 2 and breastfeeding was just diagnosed with celiac disease. My friend would like to continue breastfeeding 2-3 times per day. Does she need to go gluten-free herself, does gluten transfer to breastmilk?

Finding a dietitian

My daughter was diagnosed with celiac disease last May. We removed all gluten from her diet, but would like to see a dietitian to help us. How can we find a dietitian that is knowledgeable about celiac disease?

Understanding gluten levels

I work for a frozen pizza manufacturing company. We currently process gluten-free pizzas using crusts sourced from approved suppliers. We understand the gluten level limits specified under FDA (<20 ppm) and our current gluten-free certification (<10 ppm). As we look to expand our gluten-free production capabilities. Are there resources or studies available that show statistical data on gluten levels to consider for most severe cases (e.g. 20 ppm versus 10 ppm or 5 ppm)?

Playing on wheat straw

I recently became aware that my child’s after school program used wheat straw in their outdoor play area. I doubt parents think of straw as a problem in the outdoor environment. I did not see much on the internet about this type of exposure. I’m guessing many parents would not think of this.

Assisted Living Facilities and GF Meals

What is the best approach to take in regard to the gluten-free diet in considering a move to an assisted living facility? Many offer a meal plan and that can be a problem for a person with celiac disease. So many will respond “oh our chef is really great and he/she can handle this request.”

Eating GF when traveling abroad

I’ll be traveling abroad three times in the next year and while I’m excited, I feel worried about food availability while traveling. I really don’t want to get sick while in a foreign country. Do you have any tips for traveling with celiac disease?
