"The gluten-free diet is so difficult to adhere to, and it is the only treatment for celiac disease; with our study we are hoping that the mind/body medicine course will assist people with newly-diagnosed celiac disease stick to the diet," states Dr. Sunana Sohi, a Fellow in Gastroenterology
According to Dr. Sohi, the study is looking for people recently diagnosed with Celiac disease in the Chicago area (within the past 4 weeks) or those who have only been on a Gluten free diet for 2 weeks or less. "If the person meets our enrollment criteria, they will be enrolled in one of two 8 week Mind/Body medicine courses, free of charge."
Dr. Sohi is optimistic that this study will have a positive impact on Mind/Body medicine and represent a new tool in the treatment of patients with celiac disease.
