Celiac Disease: In Memory of Dr. Mathew Baillie

Dr. Mathew Baillie, born October 27, 1761, known to have been one of the frontiers in celiac disease, discovered that a gluten-free diet would help those suffering from gastrointestinal problems and other symptoms, what is now known to be celiac disease.  In the early nineteenth century Dr. Baillie documented the improvements of following a gluten-free diet, and for the first time, the relapse upon reintroduction of gluten.  He explained, “Some patients appear to derive considerable advantage from living almost entirely on rice.”
