Gluten Sensitivity


Thank you to a friend who watches gluten-related news like a hawk for this article. Melinda Beck of The Wall Street Journal just published this article on gluten sensitivity:

This article talks about the three distinct kinds of reactions to gluten/wheat, celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, and wheat allergy. Here is an excerpt:

A new study in the journal BMC Medicine… shows gluten can set off a distinct reaction in the intestines and the immune system, even in people who don’t have celiac disease.

“For the first time, we have scientific evidence that indeed, gluten sensitivity not only exists, but is very different from celiac disease,” says lead author Alessio Fasano, medical director of the University of Maryland’s Center for Celiac Research.
