Gluten a Cause of Bipolar Disease?

Another new study finds that Bipolar patients have elevated levels of antibodies to gluten.  Unlike several past studies, this research does not focus on celiac disease, but rather identifies that patients with psychiatric bipolar issues are have elevations in IgG to gliadin. Source: Bipolar Disord. 2011 Feb;13(1):52-8. Research continues to show the link between gluten […]

New Glutens Discovered to be Harmful To Health

A new research study has led to the discovery of new gluten proteins responsible for generating immune damage in patients with celiac disease.  This new study helps shed more light on the mechanisms behind gluten sensitivity.  This information helps uncover the myth that only gliadin is responsible for the inflammatory immune reaction that contributes to […]

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 […]

Patients with Celiac Disease React to Multiple Gluten Proteins

Researchers have identified additional gluten proteins responsible for generating immune damage in patients with celiac disease.  These studies help shed more light on the mechanisms behind gluten sensitivity.  Additionally, this new information helps dispel the myth that only alpha gliadin (a specific type of gluten subfraction) is responsible for the immune reaction that contributes to […]

Lab testing for celiac patients inaccurate

A new study on children with celiac disease finds that using anti-gliadin antibodies (AGA) to monitor dietary compliance is inaccurate.  The authors report an increase in the amount of children  who have negative test results to gliadin (the gluten component of wheat). CONCLUSION: Serum AGA seem no longer useful for monitoring compliance to gluten-free diet. […]
