There is a battle that rages on in the health world of whether gluten actually causes gut-related issues in people, or not. Many believe that you only need to avoid gluten if you have Celiac Disease, while others believe that gluten completely disrupts the intestinal lining, regardless if you have Celiac or not. One thing is for sure, developing Celiac doesn't happen overnight, so drawing a hard line in the sand for whether gluten is good for us or not should not be taken so lightly.
It is estimated that around 80% of people suffering from Celiac Disease have remained undiagnosed. For many, it could take up to a decade before they are finally diagnosed, and in these cases, they usually have already developed other autoimmunity issues that they are suffering from. In this episode, we talked with Terri Ward about how to screen for Celiac and other gluten-related disorders (hear that, gluten doesn't just cause Celiac Disease!). We also delve in to treatment options, and how to cook with gluten-free options. You can enjoy all this in this episode of Celiac Disease with Terri Ward!
