Why we’re fans:
EA joined NFCA’s panel of “Ask the Dietitian” experts back in January, and we’ve been thrilled with her work. EA has the ability to put important nutrition advice into terms anyone can understand, and she does so in a casual and conversational way (Got camel’s milk?). It’s a talent that makes us even more excited to have EA host two of our #GFchat sessions on Twitter. EA will be covering Celiac Disease & Women’s Health on May 17 and Parenting 101 on May 24.

(The first #GFchat is this Tuesday at 8 p.m. Topic: Newly Diagnosed. Get details here.)

EA’s Story: I was diagnosed with Sjogren’s Syndrome and fibromyalgia shortly after having my children. My primary symptoms included neuropathy, join pain, muscle aches, and migraines. Frustrated by the lack of treatments for both, I researched both conditions and discovered a link between celiac disease and Sjogren’s syndrome.  Although my blood tests came back negative for celiac disease, a genetic test revealed I carry a gene linked to celiac disease , plus a gene potentially linked to gluten sensitivity.  I decided to go on a gluten-free diet and that, along with following a LEAP diet for other food sensitivities, has kept me symptom-free for the past 3 years.

According to EA: The most unexpected part of going gluten-free was re-discovering the love of baking that I enjoyed as a child.

    Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the easiest
    thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly
    get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
