Question: My wife has recently started on a no-gluten diet. She doesn’t have celiac disease. Isn’t she wasting her time and money?
Dr. Cwynar's answer:
She is definitely not wasting her time or money. There is a clear-cut distintinction between celiac disease and gluten intolerance. Most people who are intolerant have fatigue, bloat, and weight gain as result of eating foods with gluten. This may be the case with your wife. By eliminating these foods, her quality of life may improve dramatically. The symptoms of gluten intolerance not only decrease quality of life, they can lead to other diseases simply by making people run down. She has a lot to gain and little to lose by trying a no-gluten diet. Wheat Belly: #1 Diet and Health Book in America Changing Lives - ONLY $4.95! Save $21
