Eating a gluten-free diet helps to control symptoms in those who suffer from celiac disease or gluten intolerance.

While going gluten-free may seem like a trend for some, it’s a necessary precaution for those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance. Gluten – found in wheat proteins, rye, barley and triticale – causes inflammation in the small intestines of those who suffer from the immune disorder or have gluten-sensitivity. Eating a gluten-free diet helps to control these symptoms and any associated discomfort.
Joining us to discuss gluten-free diets and celiac disease are Professor of Medicine in the Division of Digestive Diseases at the University Of Cincinnati College of Medicine, Dr. Bruce Yacyshyn; Associate Professor of Medicine at the UC College of Medicine and Director of Medical Weight Management at Women’s Center Metabolic Health & Weight Loss Program, Dr. Angela Fitch; and from gluten-free bakery Sweet Felicity, founder Kelly Ausman and intern Cierra Carrington
