How Gluten Sensitivity Can Impact Your Skin

In this webinar, Dr. Swati Agarwal discussed the impact of gluten sensitivity and celiac disease on an individual’s skin. Before diving deeper into the topic, she talked about the fact that there are more than 300 symptoms of celiac, making it very difficult to diagnose.

Subsequently, Dr. Agarwal addressed the issue of the recent “gluten-free” fad and shared her opinion about this trendy buzz word. Among her many points, she also touched on how gluten can be absorbed through various skin products and their consequences on those who cannot tolerate gluten.

The webinar concluded with an eye-opening Q&A session.
