Diet Doc has incorporated gluten free diet plans into their stable of specialized diet plans for those patients with a gluten allergy
Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/17/2014 -- Although gluten free dieting has gained considerable popularity of late, and while those with a true gluten allergy will benefit from following a gluten free diet plan, research also suggests that there is no scientific evidence supporting the theory that those without a gluten allergy will actually reap benefit from following a gluten-free diet.
Gluten, a protein composite consisting of gliadins and glutenins, is found in wheat, barley and rye. Gluten allergies can generate fatigue, headaches, gas, bloating and diarrhea. While lifelong adherence to a strict gluten-free diet remains the gold standard in the treatment of celiac disease, there is no scientific evidence supporting the theory that those without a sensitivity to gluten will benefit from avoiding all gluten products.
Wheat allergy is an adverse immunologic reaction specific to wheat proteins, however the prevalence of documented wheat allergy is quite low, estimated at only about 0.1% individuals in Westernized countries. And, because wheat allergy can be treated with wheat avoidance, a wheat-free diet may be more beneficial than a strict gluten-free diet. But, because clinical diagnosis is generally based upon the patient's response to a gluten-free diet, the inherent subjectivity in diagnosis and resolution of these symptoms likely contributes to the popularity of gluten-free diets. And, apart from the demonstrated effectiveness of a gluten-free diet for treating the spectrum of gluten-related disorders, evidence-based research supporting the merits of a gluten-free diet as a healthier option for the general population is lacking.
Diet Doc created specialized diet plans that are compatible with almost any medical condition, including those with gluten allergies. Diet Doc's specially trained fast weight loss team teaches their patients with gluten allergies how to avoid certain foods that trigger an allergy reaction while still losing weight naturally, safely and rapidly. These gluten free diet plans combine the healthiest principles of popular diets, such as the Atkins Diet and the Paleo Diet with Diet Doc's modern approach.
New Diet Doc patients will complete a health questionnaire and consult online with a Diet Doc physician who will review the entire system to ensure that the patient does, in fact, suffer a gluten allergy before recommending their gluten free diet plans. And, because the company has partnered with Telemedicine, patients can speak face to face with their doctor, participate in weekly checkup calls and reorder prescription weight loss medication from the privacy and comfort of their own home via the phone or internet.
After a review of the patient's entire system and history, patients will be paired with a nutritionist who will work closely to design diet plans that are compatible with each patient's individual nutritional, lifestyle and medical needs. Recommendations may also be made to enhance weight loss with Diet Doc's prescription hormone treatments, exclusive diet pills and appetite suppressants. This powerful combination triggers the brain to target, release and attack old, stored fat to be burned as fuel and quickly flushed from the system.
Because Diet Doc clients are able to finally realize fast weight loss results without suffering side effects typically associated with following a gluten free diet, more and more dieters are turning to Diet Doc, the nation's leader in safe and fast weight loss programs, for their weight management goals.
