Dr. Gourmet Newsletter

April 25, 2011

Dr. Tim Says....

Timothy S. Harlan, M.D.I write a lot. People ask me sometimes how I get so much done and my answer is that it's part of the rhythm of my day to day life. We have this newsletter and the others that we send out every week, and while there are times that it seems a chore, mostly it's fun and easy.

There are others that write too, of course. Everyone has their reason and many a very specific agenda. Here at Dr. Gourmet we work hard to make sure that what we publish is founded in well designed and executed research. Being objective and being positive is challenging sometimes and I am not sure that I always get it right.

There are a few people that I very much respect and look up to. These are writers who I read avidly and I'd like to share them with you. Some write about medicine, some about food, some about psychology and others about diet and nutrition. If you follow Dr. Gourmet, I think you will appreciate their sensibilities. Nine People You Should Follow

We are in the process of completely rebuilding that section and are publishing a new series of articles on getting started for those needing to follow the gluten free lifestyle. This is part of that series:

It's clear that Celiac Disease can be very challenging to diagnose. Stomach pain, diarrhea and bloating, some of the more common symptoms of Celiac, can also mean anything from gallbladder disease to Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). There is good research, for instance, that shows those diagnosed with IBS are four times as likely to actually have Celiac Disease. Given that this condition is under diagnosed it's important to know exactly what testing is effective. Testing for Celiac Disease
