Non-celiac Gluten Sensitivity
The gluten-free market is booming however only about 1% of the population have celiac disease. Celiac disease is the inherited autoimmune disease where when ingested, gluten causes damage to the small intestine. So why are so many people avoiding gluten? In this webinar we will evaluate the research on non-celiac gluten sensitivity and intolerance. We will evaluate when it is prudent for individuals to avoid gluten and practical applications for optimal nutrition to use with patients who choose to avoid gluten.
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • Understand the difference between celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity and intolerance.

  • Determine when it might be prudent for a patient to avoid gluten.

  • Understand the potential clinical responses to avoiding gluten.

  • Know how to coach patients with non-celiac gluten sensitivity on a healthy gluten-free diet.
