About now -- house called gluten free diets are on the rise but I don't know if -- one -- -- one and 100 Americans who they say suffers from Celia disease.
And you need to avoid -- doctor somebody you know you see these signs -- restaurants we have a gluten free menu what is it and how -- you know if you need it.
This is my favorite topic of this segment of the day so many people.
You know then called about this we are talking about Celia disease we should we have covered in the past Syria diseases really autoimmune disease you take gluten.
Gluten causes some sort of immune cascade.
Attacks the lining of your GI system and then you have all the problems bloating abdominal cramps diarrhea vomiting all of that stuff.
We're not -- -- -- disease today we're talking about somebody else which is known city act.
So it's not -- it does it bug blew his sensitivity.
Now look at itself directly causes information not through the new system.
So where we -- say that disease we have antibody test we have tests have to find that if you have the disease or not genetic testing.
-- this long -- this -- sensitivity.
Patients go from doctor to doctor a lot of times they may feel like there are they called -- mental.
This is a placebo effect this is really not true.
I -- just more upset but I think this is a real -- what is -- and and his sources of wheat gluten is found in wheat apparent of course it's.
All over we have pizza cereal ice cream -- -- all -- -- it's everywhere -- you can get away with it but.
What's important is it's almost like out of your reaction you -- -- week they get really sick because a gluten causes that reaction you've taken away.
A couple of months they feel better and so there is it real entity you've got to look at the labels.
And find out if that affects you and.
Without a single view if you -- these symptoms if you feel sick and GI issues just should you gonna gluten free diet.
Well first of all I had a couple of big -- is also found in Barley -- and people think -- cross contaminates boats so it's a lot of grains that you have to watch out for and the problem for -- years.
When I want to pursue Eric like David said I do -- -- body tell us.
But a 6% of the population we believe has this gluten sensitivity I can't do the in America -- -- -- -- negative.
I can't look in your GI track because its not gonna show the same.
-- -- -- in the same breakdown.
Of that of the intestine is not going to be there so what's -- clinical diagnosis and I like to believe my patients so they say -- god.
When I have that we wanna have them morally I don't feel well I feel fatigued I had to -- I have diarrhea.
You know what I tried them on a gluten free diet.
Because this protein we've only been used beating it for about 101000 years and I think it's a pretty rampant problem you -- believe your patient.
And -- -- do an elimination diet what you just suggested -- conceive that it has suddenly come up Ottawa suddenly like the last couple years suddenly find out about this gluten because a lot of people -- irritable bowel syndrome they had a lot of problems with adjusting and we couldn't figure out why so we started to look for something else.
This is a burgeoning field 6% of people look like they have it.
It's something that any reputable internist from -- around this will be on the lookout for -- -- -- -- actually because all of these you just mentioned -- name your new bowel syndrome.
We've talked about inflammatory bowel disease were talking about Syria disease and now this.
-- a sensitivity.
It may all have similar symptoms but now they're declaring their own independence as a different disease and I think that going to the expert finding out exactly what's going on.
Almost like allergy test is a way to go all right try global free if you get these symptoms and maybe it'll work well people who do that say they feel much better so it's worth a try you.
