Dr. Fasano of the University of Maryland Mucosal Biology Research Center (and Celiac disease research center) discusses his insights into the differences between gluten sensitivity and celiac disease.  He further goes on to explain three groups of gluten reactors:

  1. Those with an allergic (IgE) reaction to gluten (500-600 thousand people in the U.S. have this)
  2. Those with an autoimmune reaction to gluten (celiac disease – 3 million people in the U.S. have this)
  3. Immune reaction (non IgE)

He also talks about how gluten can affect any tissue in the human body without prejudice.

Did you know that we have a TRUE gluten free recipe section on the site?

    Hi my name is Eva Maria, I live in Guadalajra Mexico. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease about 6 years ago. I am Catholic and would like to purchase Communion Hosts/alter bread, I found a website that carries them with 0.01% of gluten content. I want to know if this minor content could affect my condition due to the fact that i am alergic to gluten. Consumption is sometimes daily. the package indicates to consult physician before use. I see my doctor quarterly and would appreciate any feedback regarding my question. I am going home 1/6 and would appreciate feedback as soon as possible. Thank you very much.
