Learning Materials (Part Ii)

Recommended Posts

Some time ago, I dedicated two or three weekends to learning more about the structure of Celiac disease and its physiology or pathophysiology if at all possible. The latter is ongoing and more difficult than the former because it involves proteins, antibodies, enzymes, antigens, tight junctions etc...It's just more challenging. But one resource among a few that I did find is the fantastic ITunes U. Please avail yourself of this if you can. It's a wonderfully rich site. On ITunes U, I came across a grand rounds lecture at the University of Arizona, by Dr Hasan Hasan. He visually demonstrates the gluten trigger and how it works to blunt the villi. It's one of the most demonstrative things on celiac disease I've seen to date.

Now I am taking Anatomy and Physiology to learn more (the mucosa is made up of epithelial AND connective tissue is my latest breakthrough).
