Our foundation needs your input. I am writing about Microdrop's "imaware" home #celiac test and #rheumatoid #arthritis tests. Reply, DM or send an email to me at jiscol@celiaccommunity with your experience. Your name will not be published without your permission. RTs helpful. Image
We would like to hear about your Microdrop @imaware_health #celiac or #rheumatoid #arthritis test experience, positive or negative, whether adults or children were tested, whether you acted on the results, whether you looked into it and haven't purchased one, etc.
If you used an @imaware_health home #celiac or #rheumatoid #arthritis test in LATE APRIL, MAY or JUNE, we have an extra interest in hearing from you.

If you are an influencer paid to promote the company or received a free test, please disclose.

Qs are welcome - thanks!
@imaware_health The correct email address is - in previous tweet I left off the .org extension

Celiac Disease and Covid-19: Thread with selected highlights from the webinar today co-hosted by @NationalCeliac and the @harvardmed Celiac Research Program, moderated by Dr. Alan Leichtner @BostonChildrens, featuring Dr. Alessio Fasano @CeliacResearch and Dr. Jonathan Li @DrJLi
Physician-scientist Dr. Jonathan Li @BrighamWomens, director of the Harvard University Virology Specialty Laboratory, opened with an excellent overview of Covid-19 that I highly recommend watching, but for length I will focus on the celiac-specific content in this thread
Dr. Alessio Fasano said that because Covid-19 is brand new, "we are building the airplane while we are flying" and it's too early to answer many of the questions that come up about how #celiac disease as an autoimmune condition interacts with #Covid19

Proposed labeling by @GeneralMills of using "GF" for a product that is not also labeled "gluten-free" violates the spirit if not the letter of the @US_FDA #glutenfree labeling rule & is an ill-considered affront to #celiac advocacy & #glutenfree consumers… Image
@GeneralMills @US_FDA Thanks to @GFWatchdog for alerting the community to this issue and taking the lead. @GeneralMills needs to provide a statement. We would consider a boycott if this cannot be resolved through other means. It's an unsafe approach to labeling #publichealth #celiac
@GeneralMills @US_FDA @GFWatchdog While @GeneralMills is planning to skirt and possibly violate the @US_FDA #glutenfree labeling rule with "gluten friendly" products using a "GF" symbol, note that the unwelcome term has only been used in restaurants, not on packaged products made in controlled environments

Great teamwork by media, physician, patient, advocate, lab, to demonstrate for public understanding that restaurant #glutenfree pizza may not be safe for those with #celiac. Need restaurant education & @US_FDA action @GMA @BenjaminLebwohl @GFWatchdog @k_liebowitz @Biadiagnostics
Let's recall what @US_FDA has stated about food labeled #glutenfree in restaurants:
"FDA recognizes that compliance with the gluten-free regulation in processed foods and food served in restaurants is important for the health of people with celiac disease." 1/8
"FDA’s regulation established a federal definition of the term “gluten-free” for food manufacturers that voluntarily label FDA-regulated foods as “gluten-free.” The definition was intended to provide a reliable way for people with celiac disease to avoid gluten, and..." 2/8

It's very good to see the first validation study @imaware_health. Congratulations to your team! This is important progress. I look forward to the followup studies described in the validation. In the meantime, I have some questions, which are numbered Q1-3 in this thread. 1/9
I am studying @MicrodropHealth / @imaware_health from multiple angles. I don't see investors or medical/scientific employees (rather than paid advisors) on the website. So I have a few Qs that arose as I started my review, and that I hope you are in a position to answer. 2/9
According to a PR release by the manufacturer of your kits, SQI Diagnostics @Best_Multiplex, the goal within a year is to begin testing 50k people annually for #celiac disease and 25k more for #rheumatoidarthritis… 3/9

1/ A new study by @BrighamGI & @MIT documents unlabeled gluten, lactose and other inactive ingredients in medication. "In a recent survey, 18% of manufacturers said their medications contain gluten." #celiac #medication #gluten
2/ The study was led by Dr. Giovanni Traverso @BrighamGI, whose #celiac patient felt sicker after starting a new #drug, due to unlabeled #gluten. The national celiac community has lobbied for over a decade for mandatory labeling of gluten in drugs:…
3/ We hope @US_FDA takes notice and revisits its position that #gluten in drugs is rare and in too small amounts to require labeling. @FDAPatientinfo @FDA_Drug_Info This is our position on FDA's stalled and inadequate 2017 gluten in drugs proposal:…
