Wheat and Inflammation–It’s About Time

October 31st, 2016

Research continues to confirm the link between wheat and inflammation. As I have told patients for years, it is NOT just the gluten that is concerning. Other parts of the wheat have also been shown to cause inflammation. Probably the most detailed testing of reactivity to wheat is by Cyrex Labs–Array 3. This is NOT the same as Celiac testing, but gives much broader scope to the testing for antibodies against parts of the wheat molecule. Please schedule an appointment to see if this testing is appropriate for you.
