Dr. Steve Wangen spoke on a very important topic at the GIG Conference, that of Testing for Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance.
Many of you have a gluten intolerance that may not be Celiac Disease. We are only just beginning to understand the differences, and have a long way to go.
Cynthia Kupper and GIG also understand that this is something that needs more research, and people need to hear about it. We should see even more talks on non-celiac gluten intolerance at future conferences.
Dr. Wangen, a very fun and personable guy, has graciously made his presentation slides available to everyone through his website. Follow that link and scroll down to the bottom of the page. There are 6 slides full of signs and symptoms associated with gluten intolerance! I was sad that I didn’t get to hear him speak this year (I was packing up my book table), but I thoroughly enjoyed listening to him last year. Keep an eye on him, because he has a new book coming out soon called Healthier Without Wheat: A New Understanding of Wheat Allergies, Celiac Disease, and Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance.
And, just to be fair, I know some women who have a crush on Dr. Wangen, too. But I’m not naming names.
