Americans Claim Gluten Sensitivity More Than Others
CHICAGO— Avoiding gluten is a worldwide phenomenon, but the reasons why people do so vary, a new study finds. And in the United States, it’s more common for people to say that they avoid the protein because they have a gluten sensitivity, compared with other countries. In the study, the researchers looked at the relative rates of the two main reasons that people give for avoiding gluten: that they have celiac disease and that they have a gluten sensitivity. People with celiac disease can’t digest gluten normally. When they eat it, the protein prompts the immune system to attack the small intestine, leadin...

Conclusion This study has found that while overall gluten consumption in people without coeliac disease may not be related to heart disease risk, avoiding whole grains (wheat, barley and rye) in order to avoid gluten may be associated with increased heart disease risk.

As with all studies of this type, it is possible that other factors may affect the results. However, the researc...

No gluten, no problem
Twelve years ago – at ages 5 and 3 – we were diagnosed with celiac disease. This means for the rest of our lives, we can’t eat any gluten whatsoever because it damages our intestines and we become really sick. Celiac disease is a lifelong intolerance to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, rye and oats contaminated with gluten from other products. In people with celiac disease, gluten damages the lining of the intestines. This can prevent them from absorbing nutrients and cause a variety of other symptoms. CD is always treatable by changes in diet. Some people don’t eat gluten by choice, b...
