On Monday 4th March at 8pm, UK GMT (9am, Tues 5th March NZ) Kamran Rostami, Consultant Physician and Gastroenterologist, New Zealand, will present a CPD webinar on ‘Non-coeliac gluten sensitivity; Are you lost in translation?’
Non-coeliac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) has been recently reported and characterised following several consensus meetings. There is a significant confusion related to NCGS between health professionals, and the patients presenting with gluten sensitivity. NCGS is not recognised by some and over-diagnosed by others. We will discuss, clinical presentation, epidemiology, possible biomarkers and how the diagnosis can be made or excluded. We will discuss how to differentiate NCGS from IBS.
Expected Learning Outcomes
1) Epidemiology, how common is NCGS?
2) Mood disorders and gluten. Any correlation?
3) What is the diagnostic algorithm? Is there a gold standard for diagnosis of NCGS?
4) Pathogenesis of NCGS. Is gluten the culprit or other elements in grains? What are triggering factors?
5) Differential diagnosis and clinical presentation?
6) Are there extra-intestinal symptoms?
7) Is NCGS a functional disorder?
8) Practical approach in diagnosing and treating NCGS, and more.
This webinar is equivalent to 1 CPD credit
