This course is designed to educate the healthcare professional in understanding the basic physiology, mechanisms, and key concepts regarding gluten sensitivities. The topics presented will include understanding how to distinguish between gluten sensitivities and celiac disease. In addition, we will review how other systems influence and affect gut health and will present strategies to support proper gut function and physiology.
A review of human physiology will be followed by laboratory applications, differential diagnoses, and clinical applications. Attendees will also be presented case studies with clinical applications, assessment, and health maintenance (including dietary, lifestyle, and nutritional support) from an evidence-based approach/model, and when to refer for further consultation and/or evaluation. Important clinical jewels and insights will be discussed.
