Gluten-free diet: fad or life-saving? Do you have patients asking about gluten-free diets? Or patients who are on a self-imposed gluten-free diet who may not need to be? Tune into this free webinar to discover when a gluten-free diet is necessary, accurate testing methods to determine need, and additional facts about gluten sensitivity.
At the end of this session, attendees should be able to:
- State the etiology, symptoms, and diagnostic process of both celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS).
- Discuss the “fad” of gluten-free and the risks to eating gluten-free without medical necessity.
- Summarize the gluten-free labeling rules including controversial and confusing ingredients.
- Discuss three challenges gluten-free patients have when eating away from home.
- Identify two other food intolerances that could cause continued symptoms in gluten-free patients.
