Physician Education Series on Gluten Sensitivity
Come Join us February 4th, 2012 for “The Gluten Sensitivity Spectrum” Tier 1 Certification with Peter Osborne as expert speaker. Dr. Osborne has been featured on Fox News regarding Gluten and is responsible for the website http://www.glutenfreesociety.org/. Seats are limited….the seminar is filling up fast….
Dr. Osborne has been researching gluten for over 10 years and here are some of the topics he will be discussing:
Contrary to popular belief, celiac disease and gluten sensitivity are not the same condition. The spectrum of diseases associated with gluten sensitivity is vast. Celiac is only one of the diseases caused by gluten. To date, there have been approximately 190 different medical conditions linked to gluten sensitivity. Most of these conditions affect tissues outside of the GI tract. Gluten has been shown to contribute to or cause the following:
Musculoskeletal conditions – muscle pain and wasting, joint pain, osteoporosis, myopathy…
Neurological Diseases – depression, anxiety, bipolar, ADD, epilepsy, neuropathy…
Autoimmune Diseases – RA, lupus, hepatitis, Addison’s, type 1 diabetes, celiac…
Skin Diseases – Psoriasis, eczema, scleroderma, seborrhea, dermatitis herpetiformis…
Gastrointestinal Diseases – IBS, GERD, intestinal migraines…
What you will learn by attending:
This lecture is designed to give physicians the necessary tools and clinical pearls to recognize the many faces of gluten sensitivity. You will learn how to identify lab flaws and pitfalls, proper diagnosis, as well as how to increase your patient compliance to a gluten free diet. You will learn the difference between celiac disease and gluten sensitivity and the difference between a traditional gluten free diet vs. a TRUE gluten free diet.
There is a Shortage of Doctors with Knowledge on the topic of Gluten Sensitivity:
Gluten Free Society has been bombarded with phone calls and emails from patients and physicians across the country. People want to know what doctor they can see to get a proper diagnosis. That is why we are offering the certification – to make sure that the doctors we recommend have met a minimum educational requirement on the topic.
