By Claudia Pillow, Ph.D.

There is much controversy within the lupus community about whether a gluten-free diet helps alleviate symptoms of lupus. The medical community acknowledges that some patients with lupus can also have celiac disease (an autoimmune intolerance to gluten, the protein found in wheat, rye and barley). However, the medical community has not acknowledged a link between lupus and non-celiac gluten intolerance. To understand the difference between celiac disease and non-celiac gluten intolerance, go to Food Sensitivities, Intolerances, and Allergies on The Food Philosopher’s website.

Celiac Disease and Probiotics

Bloated Stomach Due to Celiac Disease

By: Carla Spacher

Once antibodies were discovered as a way of testing for celiac disease, it opened up an entirely new way of assessing the data found in celiac disease research. Dr. Alessio Fasano, Medical Director for University of Maryland School of Medicine (update 2015 – now at the Massachusetts General Hospital), reported that, previously, doctors had to diagnose celiac disease based upon the patient’s symptoms; biopsy of the gut to confirm inflammation; and whether a gluten-free diet provided any relief. However, as is with any autoimmune disease, Dr. Fasano warns that just screening for antibodies against gluten is not a definitive diagnosis because anyone can carry this antibody who does not necessarily have celiac disease.  Celiac Disease research continues and we are learning new things every day. Learn more about celiac disease, ongoing research and about the roles of probotics and the appendix.
