Gluten Sensitivity Induces GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease)

Gluten And Acid Reflux – A Common Association Is there a medical link between gluten and acid reflux?  A recent research study linked peptic disease (heartburn, GERD, stomach ulcer) to gluten exposure in patients with gluten sensitivity.  So the short answer to the question is yes.  You can read a direct quote from the researchers below: […]

Dogs are Gluten Intolerant

Irish Setters identified to have gluten intolerance in a research study… “Affected setters, reared on a normal wheat containing diet, exhibited partial villus atrophy, intraepithelial lymphocyte infiltration, reduced brush border alkaline phosphatase activity, and increased intestinal permeability. Gluten sensitivity was shown by introduction of a gluten free diet, which resulted in resolution of morphological and […]

Hydrolyzed Wheat Flour Reduces Celiac Symptoms

A new study finds that  wheat flour that is chemically manipulated using sourdough bacteria and fungal proteins did not cause symptoms or antibody response in patients with celiac disease. A 60-day diet of baked goods made from hydrolyzed wheat flour, manufactured with sourdough lactobacilli and fungal proteases, was not toxic to patients with CD Source: […]

Corn Maize Gluten Causes Antibody Response in Celiac Patients

In this research study, testing confirmed that celiacs react to corn glutens independently of wheat. Competition ELISA and preabsorption tests indicated that antibody reaction to maize storage proteins did not simply result from cross-reaction of antigliadin antibodies. Source: Clin Chim Acta. 1991 Dec 31;204(1-3):109-22. Getting the diagnosis of gluten sensitivity often sends a person to […]

Biopsy and blood markers for gluten intolerance fail again

Another new study shows just how flawed the biopsy and serum markers are at confirming a diagnosis. RESULTS: Celiac disease was detected primarily in first-degree relatives and patients with autoimmune disorders (40.6%). A gluten-free diet was prescribed to 20/106 patients because of symptoms, which were relieved in only 11. Eighty-nine of the 106 patients entered […]
