SYMPTOMS AND MALADIES
WHICH CAME FIRST?
The DISEASE or the GLUTEN CAUSING the DISEASE!
AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES such as Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteo Arthritis, Hypo and Hyper-Thyroid, Sjogren’s, Dermatomyositis, Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura, Endometriosis, Cystic Fibrosis and others are being highly associated with gluten.
Celiac Disease is the only autoimmune disease
with a known cause:
It appears that gluten may be causing these other diseases, as many of them get better when the toxic gluten is removed from the diet.
AT RISK groups: those with Down’s, Turner’s and William’s Syndrome; those with Type 1 Diabetes and Thyroid issues have a greater chance of developing CD than the general population. It is now recommended that those with Type 1 Diabetes be screened for CD.
There is an increased risk of CANCERS:
non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, Adenocarcinoma of the small intestine, and Throat and Esophageal Cancers. The words cancer and lymphoma are appearing very frequently in research publications over the last few years, but some of this BIG C (cancer) research associated with gluten has been around since the 60’s. It is amazing information that is not making headline news.
Many ORGAN complications are associated with gluten:
HEART (autoimmune cardiomyopathy, atrial fibrillation)
LIVER (autoimmune hepatic liver, sclerosing cholangitis, high liver enzymes and more)
SKIN (dermatitis herpetiformis, psoriasis, eczema and more)
PANCREAS and more
NEUROLOGICAL and CEREBRAL maladies abound:
MIGRAINES & HEADACHES
DEMENTIA, MEMORY LOSS & ALZHEIMER’S
MS, HUNTINGTON’S & PARKINSON’S
ADD, ADHD, AUTISM & ASPERGER’S
BRAIN FOG, IRRITABILITY, BEHAVIORIAL ISSUES & more
ANEMIAS, BLOOD DISEASES, OSTEOPENIA, OSTEOPOROSIS, BONE and MUSCLE PAIN, and CONNECTIVE TISSUE DISORDERS
INFERTILITY in males and females, MISCARRIAGES, PREGNANCY ISSUES, PREMATURE BIRTHS, BIRTH DEFECTS, DEVELOPMENTAL AND LEARNING DISABILITIES, DELAYED PUBERTY, and MENSES ISSUES
SINUS ISSUES, RESPIRATORY MALADIES, ALLERGIES (both seasonal, animal and food), VITAMIN DEFICIENCIES and general all-around poor health

Unbelievable isn’t it? The research is there; it’s just not reaching the doctors, and much more research is needed, but:
There is no money in this for the pharmaceutical companies
