Dr. David Samadi & Dr. Marc Siegel explore celiac disease and gluten sensitivity.
Gluten is two proteins found in whole grains; Gliadin & Glutenin.
3 Million Americans suffer from celiac disease. The human body develops antibodies against gluten that may damage the small intestine.
If someone experiences abdominal pains, weight loss, fever and vomiting the underlying cause could be gluten sensitivity.
There are 18 Million who think they may have sensitivity to Gluten and opt for a Gluten fee diet. A recent study found out that 90% of these individuals are incorrect.
Dr. David Samadi states that it’s best to have a test done first to ensure that someone is sensitive to Gluten before opting for a Gluten free diet as essential nutrients may be cut out of their diet unnecessarily.
Dr. David Samadi is the Chairman of Urology & Robotics Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital. He’s also a Fox News Medical-A-Team Contributor & Professor of Urology at Hofstra Northshore LIJ School of Medicine.
