New Research Links Gluten Sensitivity to Multiple Autoimmune Diseases
Research continues to link the of diseases to gluten sensitivity. In a recent study, gluten intolerance was found to be present in patients with multiple types of autoimmune conditions:
“Results of our studies revealed in the group of 110 patients with diagnosed gluten enteropathy, coexistence of autoimmune disease, such as diabetes mellitus type 1 in 7.2% cases, hyperthyreosis on 1.8% of cases, vitiligo in 0.9% of cases, primary biliary cirrhosis in 2% of cases and rheumatoidal arthritis in 0, 9 of cases. In the group of 80 ulcerative colitis patients, coexistence of celiac disease basing on serological histopatological investigation was found in 4 patients (5%).”
on Gluten Free Society showed the connection between gluten induced liver disease (autoimmune hepatitis). Now another new study points more autoimmune disease overlap in patients with autoimmune hepatitis.
“A total of 111 patients (40%) were diagnosed with additional autoimmune diseases…autoimmune thyroiditis was the most common concurrent disease (28 patients, 10%). Other concurrent autoimmune diseases comprised vitiligo (5 patients), (5 patients), Sjogren syndrome (4 patients), ulcerative colitis (4 patients), conjunctivitis (4 patients), celiac disease (3 patients), systemic lupus erythematodes (2 patients), type I diabetes (2 patients), multiple sclerosis (2 patients), polymyalgia rheumatica (2 patients), and urticaria (2 patients). One patient each was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, autoimmune gastritis, collagenous colitis, hypophysitis, and sarcoidosis.”
Gluten Free Society’s Stance:
Although we have identified a number of environmental and genetic triggers for autoimmunity, the only known cause for any autoimmune disease in gluten. When will doctors quit trying to micro analyze autoimmune diseases and look at the obvious connections?
Many autoimmune disease symptoms are so similar that the only way to differentiate them is by running specific antibody tests. The problem with this is that the tests can sometimes be negative and sometimes be positive. A common example of this is between rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. For most patients two simple lab tests will determine which diagnosis is given (positive RF and ANA antibodies for lupus).
Treatment for most autoimmune conditions consists of steroids, DMARDS, and other . Do doctors ever consider where the inflammation is coming from?
Why is it so hard to accept that simple dietary changes can improve disease and health? The answer is simple. Nutrition is not taught in medical school. Most doctors devalue or dismiss nutrition because they don’t understand it. Unfortunately this translates into more drugs, less real health care solutions, and sicker people.

Fuck you, judgemental piece of shitby 201019812007
I don't train poorly - I'm just accident prone and there's a physiological reason why I've torn both hip labrums and both shoulder labrums - I have multiple autoimmune diseases and am hypersensitive to things... I have a major overgrowth of cartilage in and around many of my articulations... pair that with my active lifestyle and you've got disaster and multiple injuries.
now I could bitch and moan about it the way you bitch and moan about everything, but I choose not to let it stop me or slow me down so fuck you very much, asshat.
I have a paper on adrenal insufficiency ifby samshine
You would like to take a look. Too long to post here, but I could email it.
This was from a canine health symposium I attended earlier this year.
"Which dogs should be tested for adrenal exhaustion? Those with: chronic allergies, infections,
IBD, pancreatitis; Cushingoid signs but negative Cushings tests, SARDS, poorly controlled
diabetes or epilepsy, multiple autoimmune diseases."
She said if you have a dog that keeps developing allergies, check into this.
This lady also has a couple books out.
