Everybody that comes in the door has a different story. And so you start off trying to be a detective, and you pull in the information that you have. And then you have the ability at a place like Rush where you can then access other colleagues who have different experiences and different information. And you have all the medical journals in our library. And you piece it together, and you bring it back to your patient. And when it works, it’s the greatest thing in the world.
Celiac disease is an immune-mediated reaction to the proteins in all the grass grains— so wheat, barley, and rye — and that protein collectively is called gluten.
