Title: Is it gluten free or not? A closer look at non-responsive celiac disease


Up to 30% of those diagnosed with celiac disease (CD) continue to struggle with  persistent or recurrent symptoms, signs, or lab abnormalities typical of CD despite 6-12 months on the gluten-free diet. We will look more closely at non-responsive celiac disease -its symptoms, some of its major causes, and specific dietary treatments for symptom relief and to promote healing. An update on gluten-free oats and arsenic in rice will be included.
