Article: Gluten Sensitivity V. Celiac Disease- What Do We Know?

Recommended Posts

For those who are non-celiac gluten sensitive, here is an interesting article. Much of the info may be known to some here already, but it is worth a look:

PS: The font on this page is too small for my comfort. If the same is true for you: If you open in as a PDF option on the page, it will be easier to read.

Best,

Gluten Intolerant with double HLA-DQ6. Pre-diagnosis: Weight gain, swelling, diarrhea, mouth sores, back pain, body aches, fatigue, muscle weakness, BRAIN FOG, runny nose, recurrent sinus infections, bruising, low white cell count (whole life), and more. My feet were so bad, I could hardly walk. Toward the end: Chronic Vit. D deficiency (almost no D in my body despite a quality multi-vit. each day).

There is hope! Gluten-free since Sept. '09, and I have my life back - I feel better than in many, many years!

It's nice to read that doctors are realizing that the diagnostic process needs to be re-evaluated so as to not cause the excessive health problems that are being seen because a patient doesn't meet the requirements... yet. Wonder how long it'll take to be revised?

I wonder as well. Since gluten sensitivity is getting more and more press these days, perhaps we are nearing a tipping point for progress. Hope so.

Thank you! I didn't see this thread and have subscribed to it as well -- nice that it has the entire article at the beginning. Much appreciated.
