There is so much to say about having celiac disease that sometimes thoughts don't come together in a single theme. Today is one of those days, so enjoy the potpourri of thoughts on celiac disease!
Study shows an increased prevalence of celiac disease in children in Italy.
For the past several years, probiotics have been all the rage. Probiotics are in everything including yogurt and in every grocery store. They are expensive, especially the refrigerated ones.
OMG - I have been remiss. I have not written about the FODMAP diet extensively. Today, I will rectify that misake. I will talk about what the diet is, why it is good, and how could it help with elusive glutening-like symptoms but you know you didn't eat gluten.
I thought AMG-714 was dead. In Phase 2 clinical trials, AMG-714 failed to meet its objective. The objective was to minimize or eliminate damage to the small intestine on a gluten containing diet for those with celiac disease. However, in analyzing the data, scientists found that it helped reduce symptoms in those on a gluten free diet. So, they are starting another clinical trial and I've got all the details here!!!
here are over 300 symptoms of celiac disease. When untreated, celiac can affect every part of the body. The liver can be affected by celiac and you need a liver to be alive. Today, we will talk about what the liver does and how celiac can affect the liver.

The classic picture of someone with celiac disease is underweight with a history of diarrhea. This picture is changing with more and more asymptomatic, overweight, constipated, anemic, or those with a constellation of vague symptoms being diagnosed with celiac disease. But today, we are going to focus on weight.
I'm waxing poetic a little today, sorry. But I've been thinking a lot about a question someone asked the other day. They asked if I thought that restaurants would continue offering gluten free options on their menus.
We are all social distancing now, but that will end at some point. I was thinking about what should we say when people ask about celiac.
