Cut Red Tape And Stop Doctor Prescriptions Of Gluten Free Foods On NHS

The time has come for doctors to stop prescribing gluten free foods to patients allergic to wheat gluten - known as coeliac disease - and for the NHS to find a better way to support patients, says an editorial in the independent review of medical treatment, the Drug and Therapeutics Bulletin (DTB). The process is outmoded and costly, argues DTB. And what's more, it's adding a layer of unnecessary red tape to the NHS, which takes up healthcare professionals' time and is unhelpful to patients...

AbstractExercise-associated physiological disturbances alter gastrointestinal function and integrity. These alterations may increase susceptibility to dietary triggers, namely gluten and a family of short-chain carbohydrates known as FODMAPs (fermentable oligo-, di-, monosaccharides and polyols). A recent surge in the popularity of gluten-free diets (GFDs) among athletes without celiac disease has been exacerbated by unsubstantiated commercial health claims and high-profile athletes citing this diet to be the secret to their success. Up to 41% of athletes at least partially adhere to a GFD diet, with the belief that gluten...

I’ve discussed the extremely important health condition, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, or SIBO, a number of times, as it is present at epidemic proportions and for the most part not being diagnosed nor managed in conventional doctors’ offices. The Wheat Belly and Undoctored lifestyles provide a powerful start in reversing this condition, but additional steps are often necessary. A number of people in our Undoctored Inner Circle, for instance, have identified their own SIBO and then managed it successfully with the help of our Virtual Meetup discussions, even after doctors advised them that there is no ...

Conclusion Frequently observed, the nodular, oval and longitudinal (nodular, thick or with oval parts) shape of CG, especially of the thicker left CG, on MR scans may cause mistaking them for lymph nodes, even abnormal or metastatic. On whole-body PET/MRI, evident and sometimes high 68Ga-PSMA-11 uptake in CG increases the risk of a misinterpretation of them as metastases.

(Natural News) Gluten barely registered on most people’s radars until recently, but it’s something researchers have been investigating for more than six decades. These days, we hear a lot about gluten intolerance, with some people having legitimate autoimmune disorders like Celiac disease, completely unable to consume it while others are simply following a celebrity fad...

ConclusionsVenous thromboembolism during neoadjuvant therapy and the subsequent perioperative period is common and has a significant impact on outcome. Further study into novel thromboprophylaxis measures or protocols during neoadjuvant treatment and the perioperative period is warranted.

Intestinal handling of dietary proteins usually prevents local inflammatory and immune responses and promotes oral tolerance. However, in ~ 1% of the world population, gluten proteins from wheat and related cereals trigger an HLA DQ2/8-restricted TH1 immune and antibody response leading to celiac disease. Prior epithelial stress and innate immune activation are essential for breaking oral tolerance to the gluten component gliadin. How gliadin subverts host intestinal mucosal defenses remains elusive. Here, we show that the α-gliadin-derived LGQQQPFPPQQPY peptide (P31–43) inhibits the function of cystic&nbs...

Coeliac disease (CD) is an inflammatory autoimmune disease caused by ingestion of gluten proteins, mainly gliadin. Undigested gliadin proline-rich peptides trigger the innate and adaptive immune response, resulting in intestinal cell stress and damage. A new study by Villella et al (2019) addressing the unclear primary cause of intestinal cell stress reports that gliadin peptides inhibit the function of the chloride and bicarbonate channel CFTR, causing intestinal cell stress, which is sufficient to trigger CD symptoms. Notably, CFTR potentiators used to treat cystic fibrosis effectively rescue CFTR function and marke...
