Gluten sensitivity? Adult Down Syndrome Clinic post

Some thought provoking ideas on gluten sensitivity from the Adult Down Syndrome Clinic's Facebook page today.  It is well established that coeliac disease is more common in people with Down syndrome, but we do hear about people with Down syndrome who test negative for coeliac disease, but who respond well to a gluten free diet.

The Adult Down Syndrome Clinic is in Chicago, and is known world-wide.  Drs Brian Chicoine and Dennis McGuire are the authors of the highly regarded Mental Wellness in Adults with Down Syndrome and The Guide to Good Health (for Teens and Adults with Down Syndrome) - both books can be borrowed by Down Syndrome NSW members from our library.
