Fda Workshop Presentations

Recommended Posts

The FDA had a workshop in March about development of treatments for Celiac. This webpage has the presentations (below the IBS presentations).

I learned some interesting things. For example, the blood tests are not actually approved for monitoring recovery, just for aid in diagnosis.

The FDA is supposed to issue a transcript of the meeting soon.

That does look interesting!

 

Yeah, many doctors don't realize that about the blood tests, and if you are going to use blood tests to monitor gluten-free compliance, the DGP tests are the better ones to use.  My docs kept using the tTG tests on me and I could tell that they didn't believe I was 100% gluten-free because I was still positive well past 6 months.  LOL  :rolleyes:
