Gluten-free diet

Move over, Atkins. This popular no-wheat regimen is the new It Diet, embraced by svelte celebrities, concerned parents, and yes, individuals suffering from celiac disease.

I don't have celiac disease, but I do have irritable bowel syndrome. Could going gluten-free help?

Yes, you must go gluten-free. You might also have developed secondary food sensitivities. I would avoid all gluten products and all processed foods (as some contain hidden gluten). This will help heal the gut lining and address bacterial overgrowth.
