Celiac disease occurs in about 1% of the United States population, and only about half of women are diagnosed, which is a very low rate of diagnosis. Unfortunately, celiac disease has no cure. But by understanding this disease a bit better – its genetic and environmental components, risk factors, complications, and diagnosis – we can hopefully better manage celiac disease and still enjoy the life that we want.
In today’s conversation, Dr. Peter Green, who runs the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University, joins us to talk more about celiac disease, particularly what triggers it and how it can be tested.
In this episode, you will hear:
- What is celiac disease?
- Diagnosing celiac disease
- The genetic component of celiac disease
- Risk factors and complications
- FODMAP sensitivity and medication
