Is it Celiac Disease and Something Else, or Something Else Entirely? SIBO, IBS, and Other Intestinal Disorders

February 29 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm

Join us for the first webinar in our Spring 2024 “Ask the Experts” series. Speakers will present on selected topics for 60 minutes, followed by 15 minutes for Q&A, on Thursday, February 29, 2024 from 1- 2:15 pm ET.

Other than active celiac disease due to gluten exposure, there are many reasons for ongoing symptoms, including food intolerances, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), diet changes, co-existing or inflammatory diseases, and diseases that are unrelated to celiac disease. Amelie Therrien, MD, MSc, expert celiac gastroenterologist at the Celiac Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, will review some of these conditions as well as celiac mimickers (conditions other than celiac disease that damage the small intestine and/or elevate tissue transglutaminase). Registered dietitian Christy Moran, MS, RD, will discuss the existing evidence for diet therapies to address the commonly seen irritable bowel syndrome and SIBO. The most promising clinical drug trials to address ongoing symptoms in patients with celiac disease will be highlighted by Jocelyn Silvester, MD, PhD, Director of Research for the Celiac Disease Program at Boston Children’s Hospital.

Chris Rich, executive director of the National Celiac Association, will introduce the webinar. A Q&A session will follow the presentations; please submit general questions when you register or during the webinar on the Zoom platform.
