Learning Problems?

Is your child having learning or behavioral problems? The issue could be the grains in his or her diet. Read “A Gluten for Punishment: the Whole Grain Assault on Health” (12-5-12) by Nathan Daley, MD, MPH for more information.

An excerpt:

Individuals with the silent version of the disease are just as likely (or even more likely) as those with symptomatic celiac disease to develop or have osteoporosis, lymphoma of the small bowel, and other autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (hypothyroidism), and perhaps even dementia[2],[3],[4],[5],[6],[7],[8].

Additionally, certain symptoms or disorders like constipation and bloating, diarrhea, gastroesophageal reflux, fatigue, depression, skin rashes, muscle aches and muscle damage, neuropathy (nerve dysfunction, especially motor and sensory dysfunction), migraine headaches, seizures, kidney disease (IgA nephropathy), type I diabetes, infertility, and mouth sores may be present but medical providers may fail to suspect an association with gluten[9],[10],[11],[12],[13],[14],[15],[16],[17],[18].
