Refreshments

Members, please bring a gluten-free food to share.

 

Dr. O’Bryan will discuss two very important topics in this 2-hour presentation:

For every person with Gluten Sensitivity and Celiac Disease that have intestinal symptoms, there are eight that have symptoms outside the intestines. How can we tell if wheat is a problem when the gut “feels fine”?

For many, the blood tests are negative, and yet, the person knows they feel better on the gluten-free diet. The test can be wrong seven out of ten times. Why is that?
