Grains can play havoc with your skin. The prolamin proteins, such as gliadin,  trigger autoimmune skin reactions and turn antibodies against the skin enzymes, their lectins fan the fires of inflammation, their proteins provoke allergies, and their amylopectins send blood sugar and insulin sky-high and provoke the skin-disrupting hormone insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF). The whole grain package adds up to an impressive collection of skin conditions that can take a variety of forms, from simple red, itchy rashes to scaly, oily raised patches to large vesicles to gangrene. B...

ConclusionCLN involvement and high preoperative tumor burden are independently associated with decreased survival after complete cytoreduction for OC. CLN involvement is a marker of diffuse disease and an independent risk factor for early recurrent disease.

Several disorders related to the ingestion of gluten are well recognized despite overlapping clinical presentations: celiac disease, an autoimmune enteropathy triggered by gluten ingestions in susceptible individuals, allergy to wheat, and more recently non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS). While celiac disease and wheat allergy are well-known disorders with a clear-cut diagnosis based on clinical tests and biological parameters, NCGS is a more difficult diagnosis, especially in children with functional gastrointestinal (GI) complaints. NCGS is considered a syndrome of intestinal but also extraintestinal symptoms occurring...

People with type 1 diabetes and celiac disease (T1D&CD) have high blood glucose variability. Processed gluten-free foods have shown to induce a worse metabolic profile whereas naturally gluten-free foods may represent healthier options. On the other hand, dietary fibre has shown to reduce postprandial glycemic excursions in individuals with diabetes. Thus, we evaluated the acute effect of fibre-enriched buckwheat (FBP) and corn pasta (CP) on postprandial blood glucose response (PP-BGR).

Conclusion It was feasible to use the C-test as a case finding tool in pharmacies. There was good uptake for the C-test, although the case detection rate and the test specificity were low. Based on this, the C-test has a limited role in case finding in a community pharmacy setting.

Authors: Kalambokis G, Milionis HJ Abstract Endocrine diseases, such as diabetes mellitus and thyroid dysfunction, have been rarely associated with increased serum transaminase activity. The association of Addison's disease with abnormal liver function tests has received less attention. Addison's disease as a part of autoimmune polyglandular syndrome-1 may be associated with autoimmune hepatitis. Addison's disease may also coexist with celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder commonly associated with hypertransaminasemia. On the other hand, a number of case reports have suggested hypertransaminasemia to be one of the...
