Dr. Scot Lewey says gluten disorders are far more widespread than many realize. Full-blown celiac disease affects 1 in 100 people, yet it is frequently missed or misdiagnosed as irritable bowel syndrome. Celiac disease is contributing to the rising tide of autoimmune conditions: type I diabetes, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, early-onset osteoporosis in women and osteoporosis in men. It causes untold misery for patients, who may suffer infertility, recurrent miscarriages, unexplained loss of sensation in the hands or feet, fibromyalgia, rashes, malnutrition ...
Dr. Scot Lewey says gluten disorders are far more widespread than many realize. Full-blown celiac disease affects 1 in 100 people, yet it is frequently missed or misdiagnosed as irritable bowel syndrome. That is unfortunate, Dr. Scot Lewey says, because celiac disease is contributing to the rising tide of autoimmune conditions: type I diabetes, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, early-onset osteoporosis in women and osteoporosis in men. It causes untold misery for patients, who may suffer infertility, recurrent miscarriages, unexplained loss of sensation in the hands or feet, fibromyalgia, rashes, malnutrition, and chronic fatigue, as well as gas, bloating, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. Some celiac sufferers are so sensitive to gluten that they can go into shock and die after ingesting even a small amount. They must stringently follow a gluten-free diet.
Dr. Lewey, a gastroenterologist with Gastroenterology Associates of Colorado Springs, thinks there are many more people who do not meet the criteria for full-blown celiac disease but who are gluten-sensitive.
"For every identified celiac disease patient, there are three to ten more with clinical histories consistent with celiac who don't test positive," Dr. Lewey writes in an article at www.celiac.com.
...
However, anyone with a family history of celiac disease should be screened, Dr. Lewey says.
Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity
Dr. Lewey's personal experience has led him to take a wider view of gluten-related conditions. In medical school, he diagnosed himself with irritable bowel syndrome and lactose intolerance. But after his wife was diagnosed with full-blown celiac disease, he underwent testing and found that he carried one of the celiac genes. Other tests also were positive.
When Dr. Lewey adopted a gluten-free diet, his IBS symptoms resolved and his lactose tolerance improved dramatically. His 22-year-old son, whose only symptoms were seizures after drinking beer or eating bread, also underwent blood testing and a biopsy that confirmed celiac.
Dr. Lewey began consuming what he calls "a daily diet" of articles about celiac disease and gluten sensitivity. These articles opened his eyes to a spectrum of gluten-related illnesses, which were beginning to be named: Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity (NCGS) or Gluten-Related Disease (GRD).
"I was already aggressively looking for celiac disease, but I began considering NCGS or GRD in all my patients," he says. He started recommending stool antibody testing and genetic screening to patients who had symptoms suggesting gluten sensitivity. He found that patients who adopted a gluten-free diet experienced dramatic improvements in their intestinal and extra-intestinal symptoms and overall health.
...
"It has gone from wild to domesticated," Dr. Lewey says.
...
"I think we're going to see more celiac disease because of this gluten prevalence in foods, along with the high prevalence of the genes and stress, which makes the gut more leaky," Dr. Lewey says. "The human body is going to have difficulty handling foreign proteins."
Although it has not been scientifically proven, there is some evidence that probiotics break down gluten. Digestive enzymes also may help make gluten less toxic, Dr. Lewey says. He advises his patients to take probiotics before going out to eat in case of accidental exposure.
...
But Dr. Lewey warns that your test results may not be accurate if you've already adopted a gluten-free lifestyle.
