IS GLUTEN DAMAGING OUR BRAINS ?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created March 19, 2013 at 7:40 PM

I've stopped eat gluten one years ago because of my ibs, which is now 80% better.

But I'm continuing to read everyday about the secret damages that gluten does.

I read about gluten fault in diseases like Multiple Sclerosis and ALS.

A patience was diagnosed with ALS, stopping gluten his symphtom went off, so doctors say it was a wrong diagnose.

Do you think gluten can cause TERRIBLE disease like ALS,MS, and lots of other?

stay away from gluten!!

here it is a link

I'm sorry you have IBS. Your N=1 is not my N=1 though. I appreciate your concern, but as Voltaire said "We must tend our own garden." Now that you've healed yourself move on.

Read that again. 132 out of 133 do not have celiac. 19 out of 20 have no reaction to gluten -- and that is their upper-end estimate.

No, that means 19 out if 20 don't have CELIAC disease. There's growing recongnition that there are many people who are not celiac but ARE gluten intolerant, and many more perhaps, may be intolerant to OTHER compounds in modern grains.

according to Celiac Disease Center at most 1 in 20 are gluten intolerant with 1 in 133 having celiac disease. that means 19 out of 20 are not intolerant.

*recommends considering the diagnosis of gluten sensitivity in patients that present with propriospinal myoclonus*

*We present a case of a young man* -- a, as in one

*Coeliac patients showed a higher total plasma homocysteine level than the general population*

I could go on. Yes, for people with gluten intolerance, especially those with acute intolerance or coeliac disease should refrain from gluten because it can be extremely damaging to them. The general public? Probably not such a big deal.

Please be careful about extrapolating studies about specific sects of the population.

"When people who are gluten intolerant eat foods containing gluten, their immune cells target this protein as they would a bacteria or virus. This creates an inflammatory response that eventually destroys the villi, the tiny, fingerlike protrusions in the lining of the intestine through which all our nutrients are absorbed. This inflammatory response can directly affect brain tissue much like what is seen in multiple sclerosis, including telltale white lesions in the brain that are similar to the kind of damage seen in MS patients." - from David Perlmutter, M.D., The Better Brain Book....... but there appears to be some kind of change in the gluten, or consumption levels, or our environment that is making more and more people intolerant :(
