Robotic oncologist, Dr. David Samadi, clarifies the difference between gluten allergies and celiac disease. Celiac, an autoimmune disease, is the result of the body producing antibodies to gluten. An allergy to gluten or a gluten sensitivity can be more easily managed by avoiding foods that contain gluten such as wheat, barley, and rye. Unfortunately, explains Dr. Samadi, diagnosing a gluten allergy can take time. Symptoms include GI or gastric issues such as bloating and diarrhea, but can also be more systemic in the form of migraines, rashes, and arthritis-like issues. If a patient suspects a gluten allergy, Dr. Samadi recommends keeping a food journal to track any negative results of the specific foods they consume. That information can be very valuable to a physician evaluating overall symptoms.
