EM1606H "Nonceliac Gluten Sensitivity" (IM GR-061716)
Review the current status of nonceliac gluten sensitivity. Is it caused by a food fad, or does gluten actually induce symptoms in some people who do not have celiac disease?
UT Southwestern faculty, fellows, residents and medical students, community physicians, nurse clinicians, physician assistants and nurses.
At the conclusion of this activity, the participant should be able to:
- Understand the definitions of gluten, gluten-free diet, and nonceliac gluten sensitivity.
- Review controlled, double-blind clinical trials that were designed to see if ingestion of gluten causes more symptoms than a placebo.
- Review status of the search for biomarkers of nonceliac gluten sensitivity
- Discuss the clinical significance of nonceliac gluten sensitivity in the practice of internal medicine.
