We all know that the only treatment for celiac disease is a lifelong gluten-free diet and that cheating regularly can lead to long-term health complications like malnourishment and other autoimmune disorders. We hear our doctors telling us constantly that even a small amount of gluten can cause damage to the gut, but is it possible for our gluten-free diets to become overly strict and lead to being unhappy? Perhaps…
According to a new study published in January, people with celiac disease who are extremely vigilant about not eating gluten may be more anxious, exhausted and report an overall lower quality of life. To help us discuss this study and how to strict we really need to be, we have Dr. Randi Wolf from Teacher’s College at Columbia University in the studio.
