Free Webinar: Celiac Disease, Gluten Sensitivity and Neuropsychiatric Disease

 

The expanding spectrum of gluten-related disorders is a clear indication that the gluten protein can cause an immune response in bodily systems other than the small intestine. Interestingly, research has found that different gluten proteins are the source of the various abnormal immune responses. Join NFCA as Armin Alaedini, PhD of Columbia University Medical Center discusses the current research on the role of gluten in popular areas of interest such as schizophrenia, ataxia, autism and ADHD.
