Managing Celiac Disease: An Overview for Young GIs

Feb. 3, 2016

The New Gastroenterologist explores the ins and outs of celiac treatment in the Winter 2016 issue.

Laura Pace, MD, PhD, David Kunkel, MD, and Sheila Crowe, MD, AGAF, provide an overview of the diagnosis and treatment plan for celiac disease in the Winter 2016 edition of The New Gastroenterologist. 

The authors point out that while celiac-like symptoms have been described for hundreds of years in literature and beyond, there has been nearly a five-fold increase in prevalence of the autoimmune disorder in the past 50 years. In addition to background, they provide clinical decision support tools, testing information and a list of helpful takeaway points. 

The issue also addresses tips for delivering effective medical lectures in an article by Peter Buch, MD, AGAF, FACP, who is an associate clinical professor at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. Some topics include keeping your audience in mind, keeping the message simple and focused, and being receptive to feedback.

Another highlighted topic is GI advocacy, and the importance of such events as AGA Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill, by Erin Forster Perlini, MD, MPH, and Peter Margolis, MD, AGAF.
