Your Celiac Disease Risk Is Tied To Where And When You Were Born
In the U.S. and most of the Western world, about one percent of the population will be diagnosed with celiac disease, an immune disorder in which the body can’t properly digest the wheat protein gluten. It leads to intestinal damage that can jeopardize nutrient absorption. But in Sweden, the rate of celiac disease is almost double that, at 1.8 percent.  Sweden’s “epidemic” of celiac disease started in the late 80s and early 90s. While diagnosis rates in Sweden began to subside in the early 2000s, the country still has a higher rate of celiac disease than most of Europe.  The medi...

What Medical Problems Can Patients with Turner Syndrome Have?
Discussion Turner Syndrome (TS) is one of the most common genetic disorders in females. It was first described by Dr. Henry H. Turner in 1938. It affects 1 in 2000-2500 births and ~70,000 girls and women have TS in the United States. It is caused by the absence of all or part of the second X chromosome. The most common variation is 45X which affects about 50% of TS patients and usually has the most complications, but there are other variations. Phenotypes vary and therefore the age of diagnosis varies. Mean age of diagnosis unfortunately is 15 years. Diagnosis is made by chromosomal analysis. Haploinsufficiency of the SHOX...

People who don’t have a diagnosis for celiac disease or a wheat allergy may face a lot of scorn and derision for claiming to be sensitive to wheat products, skipping pasta and bread.  But a new study by scientists at Columbia University may explain why certain grain products can cause intestinal discomfort in some people, even if they don’t have a widely-recognized medical condition. It may also present doctors with a new way to test for this non-celiac wheat sensitivity, which for now has no diagnostic measure and must be assessed clinically, according to a person’s symptoms.

Nonetheless, they arrive at the single-family residence a few minutes behind a police officer who's been sent to assist.

3 reasons your child shouldn’t go “gluten-free” (unless your doctor says so)
Follow me at @drClaire There is a puzzling and worrisome new phenomenon that I am seeing as a pediatrician: parents who are putting their children on gluten-free diets. It’s puzzling because in the vast majority of cases it isn’t necessary — and it’s worrisome because, although parents are doing it because they think it’s healthy, a gluten-free diet can be very unhealthy for children. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, barley, and some other grains. It’s in bread and other baked goods, cereals, pastas — and in many other foods in small amounts. For people with celiac disease,...
