Stomach pain, diarrhea, weight loss. Those are some of the symptoms of celiac disease, which is an autoimmune reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. At least one out of 100 Americans have celiac. Most of them don’t know it. And studies suggest that some people who don’t have the disease […]
What is the effect of gluten-free diet on cerebellar MR spectroscopy in gluten ataxia? Gluten ataxia is defined as sporadic ataxia with positive antigliadin antibodies without an alternative cause. Gluten ataxia patients often receive MRS at baseline and again after a period on a gluten-free diet. A research team recently set out to evaluate the […]
There have been a number of studies showing a strong connection between celiac disease and dental enamel defects (DEDs), however, the exact relationship is still unclear. To get a better understanding, a team of researchers recently set out to evaluate DEDs in people with celiac disease by looking at how long it took them to […]
People with fibromyalgia often experience symptoms similar to those seen in patients with gluten-related disorders. Could these patients have some kind of hidden gluten sensitivity?
