Dr. Steve Wangen – Non-CD Gluten Intolerance

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.

    Thank you so much for this info! I’m non-celiac gluten intolerant and just getting used to it all. We think our son is too, so we’re all making some changes. I’ll go check out his site. Thanks so much!

    I just wanted to add a comment that I cannot speak more highly of Dr. Wangen and the IBS treatment center!

    I was recently diagnosed with non-celiac gluten intolerance, a variety of high level food sensitivities, and a few other digestive irregularities. After years of weird symptoms, specialists who couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me (I am young, and until recently have always been healthy), and a growing feeling of helplessness, I’m finally starting to feel better.

    I am so greatful to Dr. Wangen and the center, and would encourage anybody with suspicions of gluten/food intolerance or IBS to check the Treatment Center out.

    I was diagnosed w/Celiac in 2000 in hospital &
    tested (Celiac Positive). Others in my family are Celiac Positive, also.
    I strive to eat a perfectly GF diet. This month
    I got sick. My doctor would not see me for a check-up without me proving – Celiac Positive.
    The hospital, the doctor & LabCorp have all shredded their records after 7 years. My Celiac Antibody tests now show – Negative.
    I will not eat gluten to test positive. Please, caution Celiac’s to make their doctors give them their reports & to copy them for future years use.
