This is going to be a short post, but I wanted to let you all know that Dr. Tom O’Bryan, the man who coordinated The Gluten Summit is planning a follow up that is all about what to do with the information that we now have as a result of the summit.
I am looking forward to this because one of the challenges that I have had over the past few years has been in actually implementing what I knew. We have been gluten-free dairy-free and corn-free for a few years now and I would love to get blood work done to see if there is anything else I need to avoid. I would love to know what other autoimmune symptoms to beware. I already get a super-comprehensive thyroid panel but what else should I look for?
And what do you say to people with other autoimmune conditions who really need to be checked? What tests should they demand? Fortunately it appears that endocrinologists are catching up to the link between celiac disease and type 1 diabetes. But what about NCGS and schizophrenia or autism?
As I know more I will post more. He just did a save the date for now, so be on the lookout!
