Scientific knowledge and qualifications underlie my non-coeliac gluten sensitivity course of therapy in Australia.
Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity (NCGS) or gluten intolerance is a gastrointestinal disorder often mistaken for Celiac disease or a wheat allergy. Though a less severe condition, it presents symptoms similar to Celiac disease, such as brain fog, headaches, fatigue, gas, bloating, and abdominal pain.
- There is no test to diagnose NCGS, yet medical practitioners can identify it when people experience symptoms after consuming gluten but test negative for wheat allergy and Celiac disease.
- Increasing evidence suggests there may be a link between some auto-immune disorders and NCGS. At present, very little is known about the causes of auto-immune diseases.
- The extent to which a patient with NCGS needs to eliminate gluten from their diet depends on their symptoms and tolerance levels. With the rise in awareness of gluten’s potential impact on health, a low-gluten diet is now easy to implement and manage.
I seriously consider the emerging evidence of an association between NCGS and auto-immune disease. I help people better manage the gastrointestinal discomfort of NCGS but also devise low-gluten, microbiome-enhancing diets that may address auto-immune disease at its potential core
