Who Should Be Gluten-Free? A Review for the General Practitioner

Michelle Pearlman, Lisa Casey
Medical Clinics of North America 2019, 103 (1): 89-99
Historically, a gluten-free diet was recommended only for those with celiac disease or IgE-mediated wheat allergy. With changes in food allergy labeling in the United States and the publication of several best-selling books, gluten-related disorders have come to the forefront of popular culture. As a result, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of gluten-free diet followers, many for nontraditional reasons. As "going gluten-free" has become mainstream, it is imperative that health care providers acquire the knowledge to identify true gluten-related disorders to effectively counsel their patients and minimize potential complications from following such a restrictive diet.
