Study Explores Potential Celiac Disease in Adults

Posted on by IBSTC

This study supports what we at the IBS Treatment Center have been saying for years, and even published in Dr. Stephen Wangen’s book “Healthier Without Wheat.” Once you’ve have positive blood testing for celiac disease, the biopsy is superfluous. But not for the doctor, because that is how they make their living. Patients with positive […]

Washington Post: Advice for going gluten-free with kids

Posted on by IBSTC

This article should read, “Celiac disease is curable by changing your diet. But there is not yet a symptomatic treatment like we have for most other self induced ‘diseases.’” The medical system is still working on a drug to sell you that will give you the false sense that you’ve solved the problem. For example, […]

Be Wary of Pill That Enables You to Ingest Gluten

Posted on by IBSTC

A recent study seems to suggest that there could soon be a pill that enables people otherwise allergic to gluten to ingest it and follow that with a pill. Much the same way that lactase pills allow people with lactose intolerance to eat dairy products without upsetting digestion. We already have such enzymes. In fact, […]

Unnecessary Celiac Study Ignores the Fact That Drugs Are Not the Answer

Posted on by IBSTC

Today I came across another example of a study on how to practice really bad medical care. First, tell people to eat something that is poisoning their body. Then ask them to take a drug to see if that helps. That is exactly what was done in this study on a new drug called larazotide. […]

Celiac Disease and Fertility

Posted on by IBSTC

We came across this article, which discusses fertility issues in women with celiac disease and wanted to share.  Since the beginning of 2010, there have been 10 articles published about issues in fertility associated with celiac disease. This particular study mentions that few gynecologists are aware of these issues.  Which simply confirms how important celiac […]

Researchers Offer Confusing Advice on Gluten and Celiac

Posted on by IBSTC

Always question what you read online. What is the source? What is their motivation? A recent article discusses the approach of some researchers to celiac disease is to “Counter celiac disease with early glutens.” This study is missing the point. It’s not just about celiac disease, it’s about all gluten sensitivity.  They only looked for […]
