What's the role of nickel exposure in gluten-related diseases? Photo: CC--Yaybiscuits12

Does nickel have a role to play in gluten‐related diseases? Nickel is the most common cause of contact allergy, and nickel exposure can result in systemic nickel allergy syndrome, which mimics irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Nickel is also found in wheat, which invites questions about possible nickel exposure from wheat in some cases of contact dermatitis. However, nickel hasn't really been studied in relation to gluten‐related diseases.

Microwave-based treatments of wheat can trick R5-antibody ELISA tests into registering under 20ppm gluten, and thus seeming gluten-free, but the actual gluten content remains unchanged. In recent tests, researchers found that microwave treatment (MWT) of wet wheat kernels caused a striking reduction in R5-antibody-based ELISA gluten readings, reducing the readings to under 20 ppm, so that wheat could theoretically be labeled as gluten-free.

Are so-called fad gluten-free dieters getting a bad rap? Could some of them be onto something? There's been a lot of talk in the media and among researchers about the large numbers of people who adopt a gluten-free diet without a celiac disease diagnosis. Many of these dieters are regarded with a bit of suspicion. The question areises as to whether gluten was causing them any problems that could be improved by a gluten-free diet. Most have been regarded as simple fad dieters.

Should doctors screen patients with autoimmune thyroid disease for Celiac Disease? Researchers have noted a strong clinical association between autoimmune thyroid disease and adult celiac disease. In part, at least, this appears to be related to common genetically-based determinants as well as a common embryonic origin since the fetal thyroid is derived from the pharyngeal gut.

Refractory dermatitis herpetiformis different than refractory celiac disease. Photo: CC--ProVillage9991

Dermatitis herpetiformis is a skin disease that causes blistering, and is understood to be an external symptom of celiac disease. Refractory celiac disease, which does not respond to a gluten-free diet and which carries an increased risk of lymphoma, is well-known to clinicians and researchers. New research shows that guts of patients with refractory dermetitis herpetiformis respond positively to a gluten-free diet.

Celiac disease is a chronic autoimmune-mediated enteropathy, triggered by exposure to dietary gluten in genetically prone individuals. Celiac disease is also one of many gastrointestinal diseases that can have dental manifestations. In fact, distinct dental enamel defects are strong indicators of celiac disease, and may lead to a role for dentists in better celiac screening.

There's been a great deal of excitement, and plenty of confusion, among celiac sufferers about a drug that breaks down gluten into harmless smaller molecules. The good news is that the drug, GluteGuard, has shown some early promise in treating mild gluten intolerance randomized human trials. The drug is also currently available in UK and Australia, as a "complementary medicine," a category does not require any proof that it actually works.

How can doctors make sure they properly screen celiac patients for autoimmune thyroiditis? People with celiac disease have higher rates of autoimmune thyroiditis, and vice versa. Both of these common autoimmune diseases share multiple aspects lodging at the two ends of the gut-thyroid axis where the cross-talks' pathways are still unrivaled.

Scientists have devised a universal gluten cross-contamination checklist they hope will help to reduce gluten contamination in the food services industries. The newly created food services checklist was compiled after an extensive literature review, input from 11 different experts with PhDs and experience with food services and/or gluten and celiac issues, along with documents from various organizations such as the Gluten-Free Certification Program from the Canadian Celiac Association.

More and more evidence shows a connection between gut inflammation and type 1 diabetes (T1D).
