Here on the Gluten sensitivity/Celiac Disease forum we have often been asked "What does gluten have to do with neurological disease?"

Dr. Hadjivassiliou, a neurologist in the UK, has been a leader in connecting central and peripheral neurological damage to gluten. He contends that gluten directly attacks the nervous system. According to Dr. H, gluten sensitivity, without the damage to the small intestine as seen in celiac disease, is all that is needed for the nervous system to be damaged.

Thought it might be nice to have a quick reference to all these papers. The complete article is available for some of these papers.

Unless there is another M. Hadjivassiliou, he has contributed to more than 43 papers and the number continues to climb - these are the ones about gluten.

Default Lab Conversion Chart

Lab results may be measured as Conventional units or Syst**me International (SI). When intepreting your labs or reading abstracts and articles it is important to look at the measurement used. You may need to convert lab values in order to make sense of articles or compare your lab values to what is written.

Here is a lab conversion chart that may help you.

Local Support Group Websites - This is a list of websites that local support groups have done. Not all support groups have websites.

Many times there are restaurants, shopping, recipes that are included. This can be a valuable resource if you are traveling near those cities. Also in this link are support group locators.

Default has several topics on conditions related to problems of the digestive system mainly caused by digestion. A particular section is about gluten intolerance, but there is an interesting part which helps people avoiding false negative results when going for a celiac screen:
