Wall Street Journal Article on Gluten Sensitivity
On Monday, the Wall Street Journal online posted an article entitled, Clues to Gluten Sensitivity. The article discusses a recent study showing that gluten sensitivity exists and can trigger immune responses in people, such as IBS-like symptoms, bloating, and chronic fatigue, to name a few, and that following a gluten-free diet can help alleviate those symptoms.
This article is good news to me because I hope it will encourage people to consider trying a gluten-free diet who are experiencing some of these wide range of health issues. As the article states, this study will help assure people that they are not crazy to think that they might feel better without gluten, even if they don’t have celiac disease. Gluten sensitivity can cause much pain and will hopefully be taken more seriously by doctors as more and more research is done in this area.
