How to Diagnose Gluten Intolerance
Subscribe to Dr. Greger’s free nutrition newsletter at http://www.nutritionfacts.org/subscribe and get a free excerpt from his latest NYT Bestseller HOW NOT TO DIE. (All proceeds Dr. Greger receives from his books, DVDs, and speaking go to charity).
DESCRIPTION: After a formal evaluation to rule out celiac disease, those who suspect they might have gluten sensitivity should first try improving their diet and then have other causes excluded before going on a gluten-free diet, since as many as 1 in 3 people who avoid gluten for symptom control end up having a different disease altogether.
If you missed the first two videos of my 3 part series on the latest in gluten, check out Is Gluten Sensitivity Real? (http://www.nutritionfacts.org/video/is-gluten-sensitivity-real) and Gluten-Free Diets: Separating the Wheat from the Chat (http://www.nutritionfacts.org/video/gluten-free-diets-separating-the-wheat-from-the-chat). I’m curious how this has all been received. I hope it helped clear things up.
Please let me know what you thought of my coverage of the best available science I found. If there are any pieces you think I missed or got wrong, please let me know so I can correct them!
Some food strategies that may help with irritable bowel symptoms are covered in a few of my previous videos, such as Kiwifruit for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/kiwifruit-for-irritable-bowel-syndrome/) and Cayenne Pepper for Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Chronic Indigestion (http://www.nutritionfacts.org/video/cayenne-pepper-for-irritable-bowel-syndrome-and-chronic-indigestion).
Have a question for Dr. Greger about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-to-diagnose-gluten-intolerance/ and he’ll try to answer it!
