Variance in Reasons for Adhering to a Gluten-Free Diet at School

Today’s podcast hits on an important topic that comes up regularly in the media. We hear lots of news reports about people going on a gluten-free diet when they don’t need to be medically. We most often think about this as happening in adults, but a study led by a team of researchers at the Mayo Clinic now reports this is happening amongst school age children as well. 

To share more with our listeners about this controversial topic, I have Dr. Imad Absah in the studio with me. Dr. Absah is a pediatric gastroenterologist at the Mayo Clinic and a leader of the Gluten-Free Diet in School Aged Children in Olmsted County, Minnesota study that was published in the Avicenna Journal of Medicine.  

Thank you to the Walter and Jean Boek Global Autoimmune Institute for their ongoing support to make this podcast possible.
