At last, I have come to the final part of the Gluten Summit series: the summary! What are the main conclusions? What can help us most practically in our day-to-day gluten lives? Have a read of the round-up piece here:
In this report, I have picked out the best nuggets from the four key areas: Overview, Causes, Diagnostics and Treatment.
I really hope you found this series useful and that it will open some eyes to the real problem of gluten-related disorders and overturn some of the pervading – and frustrating – myths about gluten illness. It most definitely is NOT all about coeliac disease or gliadin, and the traditional gluten free diet approach falls woefully short for many gluten-sensitives. If we only get that key message across to more people, then I’ve done my job!
I will shortly be putting the whole series as a free download on the site and I hope people will use it as a sort-of gluten-related disorders ‘primer’ and will give it to dissenting or simply gluten-uneducated friends, family and health professionals when they need to.
Finally, thank you to CoeliacsMatter, who commissioned the series and made me do it!
