5 Things You Should Know Before Trying an Elimination Diet
By Cynthia Sass, MPH, RD Suspect you might have a sensitivity to gluten or dairy, but aren't sure which is the culprit? You might be considering trying an elimination diet. This short-term eating plan has gained popularity recently as a way to identify potential food issues, including allergies, intolerances, and triggers of irksome symptoms--from bloating, joint pain, and fatigue to skin issues like eczema.

A pilot study by Coeliac UK published in the International Journal of Clinical Pharmacy points to the potential of using community pharmacies to assist in finding patients with undiagnosed coeliac disease. The findings indicate that if the approach was embraced by the NHS, it could improve diagnosis rates by targeting those suffering the most common symptoms of coeliac disease for testing. The approach also has the potential to reach people earlier and reduce the number and cost of repeat GP appointments (Source: Current Awareness Service for Health (CASH))

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...
