    Hello all,

    I recently wrote the following email to the Beachy Amish site and an Amish Newspaper:
    =================================================
    Dear Sirs,

    as far as I know far more Amish people suffer from Gilbert Syndrome than the average population:
    https://www.genetests.org/tests/details.php?id=173820

    Recently, a study came out indicating that it might be possible to "quasi-cure" gilberts syndrome with the so called "paleolithic (ketogenic) diet":
    http://pubs.sciepub.com/ajmcr/3/4/9/

    Now, of course this study involved only one person, but still this is, as far as I know, the first scientifically documented case of a "quasi Gilbert Syndrome cure". There exists no known medical cure for Gilberts Syndrome.



    So this information could possibly be a very valuable for the Gilbert Syndrome sufferers among the Amish people and thought that you might want to print an article about it.

    Please confirm that you received this email :)

    Best regards,

    Mr. ... from Austria, Central Europe
    =================================================
    but did not receive a reply.

    Can anyone with ties to the Amish people please forward this to them or post this in Amish forums? If they have forums. LOL!!!

    Thanks,

    best regards

    I don't think they have forums. I think you'd literally have to drive to their farm and tell them in person.

    Go online and loom for Amish made furniture. You can probably get a conversation going.

    It's a very isolated community. They don't share too much about themselves or their people to strangers. Good luck, though! I bet that you can get some information somewhere if you push hard enough :)

    uh...here: http://www.ehow.com/how_8348678_contact-amish-family.html
    I did a quick google search...it's not specific for what you want, but I think you can make it work.

    Good luck. I think email is a pretty ineffective way to reach them. A letter or newspaper advertisement maybe...
