Springfield, MA (PRWEB) October 21, 2009
A newly-opened online store will sell a wide assortment of gluten free products to clients who suffer from celiac disease and gluten intolerance. This medical problem can show up at any age, and once diagnosed, becomes a lifelong battle to control its adverse effects. To control the disease, patients must maintain a gluten free diet which eliminates products containing wheat, rye, barley, and oats.
While gluten free products are slowly finding their way onto grocery shelves, the typical selection is usually limited to 50 items or less. 'Our new online store has over 4,000 gluten free products,' said Dr. Tatiana DiDonato, founder of The Gluten Free Review and a Russian Allergist whose husband suffers from the medical condition. She went on to say, "This significantly increases the selection over typical grocery and health store offerings, and makes a gluten free lifestyle easier to maintain."
The Mayo Clinic and The New England Journal of Medicine are now reporting evidence that the disease may be linked to medical conditions ranging from osteoporosis and infertility to stunted growth, irritability, and depression. As these studies and reports start to propagate into mainstream medicine, physicians are becoming more aware of the symptoms associated with gluten and gliadin protein intolerance. As a result, the rate of detection and diagnosis is on the increase. Newest estimates are that the number of sufferers may be 4 times as large as the current population of 31 million.
'Watching my husband suffer from what he terms as being 'glutened,' is frustrating. Only time will tell if the maintenance of a strict diet will help heal his intestinal walls,' Dr. Tatiana went on to say. It was that frustration and the long, disappointing drives to health food stores that supply gluten free foods that became the catalysts for the creation of the site and the superstore. The website not only offers information about disease and breaking medical news, it also shows gluten free restaurant menus from chains like Outback Steakhouse and P.F. Chang's who have begun catering to this growing population.
