Celiac Disease and Beyond: The Universe of Wheat and Gluten-Related Disorders

Celiac Disease and Beyond: The Universe of Wheat and Gluten-Related Disorders 

The popularity of gluten-free diets has grown exponentially over the past decade, and while prevalence of celiac disease has increased, the former has been outpacing the latter. Many other conditions, both immune mediated and non-immune mediated, result in adverse reactions to wheat consumption for various reasons. These include: wheat allergy, celiac disease, Eosinophilic Esophagitis, fructan sensitive Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), and possibly non-celiac gluten sensitivity. In addition, the gluten free diet has become popular as a treatment for a variety of other conditions despite the lack of an evidence basis. The content of this presentation will assist the clinician in understanding the various clinical indications for gluten free diets, assessing the nature of an adverse reaction to wheat-containing foods, and educating patients on the gluten-free diet when indicated.
