First bit of news: I’ve had absolutely no pain in my heel. It’s as good as new. I have to admit I’m still stunned…and I wonder if a more conventional doctor, let’s say a physiotherapist, would have made the connection between my relatively new eyeglass prescription and my heel pain.

The prevalence of gluten-related disorders, and adherence to a gluten-free diet, remain unknown in the Central American region. We conducted a cross-sectional survey of the Central American population from San Salvador, El Salvador, to estimate the prevalence rates of self-reported gluten-related disorders and adherence to a gluten-free diet. 1326 individuals were surveyed. Self-reported prevalence rates were (95% Confidence Interval): gluten sensitivit...
We thank Drs. Ashrafi-Asgarabad and Safiri for their comments on our systematic review and meta-analysis1 and to further highlight the importance of our review on the association between celiac disease and increased risk of pneumococcal infection.

They concluded that there is positive association between celiac disease and risk of pneumococcal infection. Although they have conducted valuable meta -analysis, some methodological issues need to be considered.
