In 2004 the National Institute of Health recommended a health care provider training course on celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity because both are ‘grossly underdiagnosed’. It never happened.
“We, all as medical providers, have an obligation to be educated on all aspects of celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity.”
