RHR: Does early introduction of gluten prevent Celiac disease in kids?
In this episode of Revolution Health Radio (RHR) we discuss “Does early introduction of gluten prevent Celiac disease in kids” We have a fantastic question this week. Very recently, I saw two new studies that are related to this topic come out. I read a couple of commentaries about them and then when I was reviewing questions that we could cover this week, I heard this question and thought, “Well, this is perfect timing.” It’s true that early studies indicated that it might be possible to reduce the risk of developing celiac disease by introducing gluten between four and six months of age.
If you understand the immune system and how it develops, and sensitization, it made sense to me that this could be a possibility. Whether it still makes sense to give your baby gluten at four months old is an entirely different question. There are a lot more things to talk about than just whether it would reduce the risk of developing celiac disease.
