Learning About Celiac Disease And Gluten Intolerance
WVXU-Cincinnati Edition
While going gluten-free may seem like a trend for some, it's a necessary precaution for those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance. Gluten - found in wheat proteins, rye, barley and triticale - causes inflammation in the small intestines of those who suffer from the immune disorder or have gluten-sensitivity. Eating a gluten-free diet helps to control these symptoms.

Joining WVXU Cincinnati Edition host Mark Heyne are Dr. Bruce Yacyshyn, professor of medicine in the Division of Digestive Diseases at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, Dr. Angela Fitch, associate professor of medicine at the UC College of Medicine and director of medical weight management at Women's Center Metabolic Health & Weight Loss Program, and founder of gluten-free bakery Sweet Facility, Kelly Ausman.
