The only "cure" for celiac disease is a gluten free diet. No medicine or pills can degrade the gluten to alleviate the autoimmune cascade associated with celiac disease. I think we need to talk about control rather than the gluten free diet being a cure.
Leaky gut or the idea that the gut is overly porous and things that should be contained within the digestive tract are leaking out into the body causing disease. This is a common idea in the pantheon of Facebook groups, naturopathic doctors, functional medicine, chiropractors, and other less traditional medical arenas. But is it legit?
A new clinical trial is scheduled for what was once known as AMG714. It is now Pro015 due to the licensing and funding agreement between Amgen and Provention Bio.
There might be a link to an acquired bacteria and celiac disease leading to potential prevention and cure of the disease.
I am obsessed with poo. I look at it in the toilet, examine it, think about it, wonder if it is too much or too little, and even sometimes take pictures of it. I really use my poo as a gauge of my health. I even ask my kids about their poo habits. I want to talk about a few things poo related - steatorrhea and gastrocolic reflex.
For the most part, I often feel like celiac disease is the wild west. Science knows a lot about celiac disease. It is the only autoimmune disease with a known trigger - gluten. When gluten is removed from the diet, all is supposed to be okay. But many people diagnosed with celiac don't get to "healthy".
I think I have it together and then this disease checks it!
Why are we seeing "Gluten friendly" menu items instead of "Gluten free"?
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.
