Event Details

Willie will explain testing options now available for suspected gluten sensitivity and celiac disease.

"Autoimmune and inflammatory diseases have escalated dramatically in modern times. Most current treatment for these disorders primarily involves drugs that suppress the symptoms.

In both autoimmune and inflammatory diseases the condition arises through aberrant reactions of the human adaptive or innate immune systems. In autoimmunity, the patient’s immune system is activated against the body’s own proteins. In inflammatory diseases, it is the overreaction of the immune system, and its subsequent downstream signaling (TNF, IFN, etc), which cause problems.

A substantial minority of the population suffers from these diseases, which are often chronic, debilitating, and life-threatening. There are more than eighty illnesses caused by autoimmunity. It has been estimated that autoimmune diseases are among the ten leading causes of death among women in all age groups up to 65 years."

There will be 30 minutes for questions and answers after the presentation.
