Stay abreast of the latest research on gluten related disorders with this case based self-study course!

The required reading for this course is the new 2022 edition of the book, Gluten Free: The Definitive Resource Guide by international expert, Shelley Case, BSc, RD. The book provides evidence-based and practical information about celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS), including clinical presentations, serological and genetic testing, diagnosis, gluten free diet guidelines, nutritional concerns, preventing cross contamination, gluten free labeling regulations, nutritional quality and safety of gluten free products, and client education resources.
