Why does Estonia have such a low incidence of celiac compared to Finland? They are genetically very similar populations, but Estonia appears to have a much lower percentage of its population developing celiac.
From what I have read, Finland is a big consumer of oral vitamin D fortified foods and fish oil, while Estonia is not. Could it be that
1) excessive oral vitamin D intake over time causes downregulation of vitamin D receptors in the intestine, contributing to intestinal permeability, and
2) vitamin D further enhances the immune system and helps trigger overreactions to gliadin?
If this is the case, wouldn't it be wiser to promote Vitamin D supplementation through dermal routes instead of adding it to more and more foods?

Hi there! I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago. Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods. High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction. Here's a helpful site: https://www.histaminein...

Thank you! Exactly!

No, no, no! Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating! I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat. It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not si...
