Free Webinar March 26/14: “Is Gluten Really the Problem? The Role of FODMAPs in Gluten-Related Disorders”

NFCA_WebinarChances are that you have heard of the “low-FODMAPs diet,” but do you know what “FODMAPs” really are?” In 1999, Dr. Sue Shepherd developed the low-FODMAP diet as an effective treatment for people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Researchers and physicians have also found the low-FODMAPs diet to be beneficial for people diagnosed with celiac disease who continue to experience gastrointestinal symptoms despite living gluten-free. More recently, research has suggested that FODMAPs, not gluten, may actually be to blame for the digestive issues experienced in non-celiac gluten sensitivity patients.
