Today’s podcast is about new devices that will allow people to measure the amount of gluten they are consuming without drawing blood and instead looking at gluten that is excreted in urine and stool. To help our listeners better understand these devices, how to use them and current research underway to validate their effectiveness, we have Dr. Jocelyn Silvester from Boston Children’s Hospital in the studio. Dr. Silvester is a leader in the celiac disease community and just finished a fascinating study called the DOGGIE Bag Study that looked at the gluten content in the urine and stool of patients with celiac disease as well as measured the gluten levels in the food they ate on correlating days. We know you'll be just as interested in her work as we are!
Thank you to the Walter and Jean Boek Global Autoimmune Institute for their ongoing support to make this podcast possible.
