Gluten Allergy Masks Other Problem
Medic 71, an ALS ambulance, is dispatched on a Delta-level response for a 58-year-old female patient with a "hemorrhage" at about 9 p.m., with "blood in the patient's stool following possible ingestion of gluten." The paramedics wonder if the call has possibly been over-triaged as an emergent response. Nonetheless, they arrive at the single-family residence a few minutes behind a police officer who's been sent to assist. The paramedics grab their ALS bag and cardiac monitor and are met by a woman who identifies herself as the patient's daughter. "She's downstairs on the bed," the daughter expl...

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,...

Experts Warn That Gluten-Free Diets May Be Risky For Kids
Putting kids on gluten-free diets even if they don't have celiac disease or a wheat allergy may carry more risks than benefits, experts warned. In recent years, gluten-free diets have become increasingly popular. A 2015 survey found that 25 percent of Americans said they consume some gluten-free foods, up from just 8 percent in 2013, according to the market research company Mintel Group. However, celiac disease (CD), the immune condition that makes people sick if they eat gluten, is very rare. Less than 1 percent of people in the United States have celiac disease. Some people who start a gluten-free diet may have misc...

Key gene in development of celiac disease has been found in 'junk' DNA
40% of the population carry the main risk factor for celiac disease but only 1% develop the disease. A newly found gene that influences its development has been found in what until recently has been known as ‘junk’ DNA. Celiac disease is a chronic, immunological disease that is manifested as intolerance to gluten proteins present in wheats to an inflammatory reaction in the small intestine that hampers the absorption of nutrients. The only treatment is a strict, life-long, gluten-free diet. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)
