CELIAC DISEASE - GLUTEN SENSITIVITY
Celiac Disease is a genetically linked autoimmune disease which involves an immune system inflammatory response to gluten (found in wheat,barley,rye,[oats]) that damages the villi of the small intestine. All body systems, including the brain and nervous system, can ultimately be affected from this disease through either a direct immunological attack/response, or through vitamin deficiencies associated with malabsorption.
I believe patients should be aware that this possibility exists and decide for themselves whether to take a gamble toward better health by altering their diet, while the research continues on. Much of the supportive medical literature is referenced here in The Gluten File. Visit any Celiac Disease or Gluten Sensitivity online forum listed on the Favorite Links page for personal testimonials.
A growing number of researchers and physicians do promote a gluten free diet to treat any symptomatic person who shows evidence of gluten sensitivity...even in the absence of biopsy proven Celiac Disease.
