1077. The Great Debate: More or Less Sensitive and Celiac03:33On today's Celiac Project Podcast:Are there really people with celiac disease who are "more sensitive" than others? Mike shares his latest family get-together and how even after 14 years of being diagnosed with celiac disease, making a documentary, having a podcast and otherwise shouting from the rooftops, this condition can still be confusing--even for folks who think they understand the disease. Mike and Cam also talk about the level of awareness of Crohn's and Colitis as they relate to celiac disease, and why we celebrate Celiac Awareness Day, which was just last Wednesday.Listen to the full episode here: https://celiacprojectpodcast.libsyn.com
1076. Italy Will Begin Testing All Kids for Celiac02:56Good news out of Italy! They are starting a program to test everyone from 1-17 for celiac disease from 2024 through 2026. According to the latest estimates from the Italian Society of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Pediatric Nutrition (Sigenp), one in 60 children in Italy is affected, but 6 out of 10 remain undiagnosed. This is one of the highest figures in the world. It is therefore necessary to increase diagnoses, specialists warn, to prevent long-term consequences.Although it's only in Italy, this is a win for the entire gluten free community. Hopefully results from their efforts could influence whether or not similar programs spread to other countries.

Study participants most often described brain fog as difficulty concentrating, forgetfulness, and grogginess.Read the full study here: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34049371/
