Interesting New Study Not Yet Published

Recommended Posts

My boys' had their regular GI check-up today and their doc shared with me a bit about a new study that's not yet published, it's so new. I thought I'd share it with you all. This study looked at infants and delaying the introduction of gluten to one year and the effects it had on getting celiac in predisposed individuals. This actually sounds a lot like the study my daughter is enrolled in. They found that for a child "destined" (my words) to get celiac within the first 3 years of life, delaying the introduction of gluten to one year, delays the diagnosis by 5-7 months. Makes sense I guess considering you're delaying gluten to start with. But geez, my first thought was, only 5-7 months?

If you are delaying gluten until a year you have delayed it about 5-7 months. So it takes the same amount of time just the child is a little older. It seems to me to be mostly the same. Only so many kids don't have gluten issues even in celiac predisposed kids.
