Wheat is an Endocrine Disruptor, Elevates Prolactin in Celiac Disease

•, By Sayer Ji
  That wheat can act like an ‘endocrine disruptor‘ is not well known, but is not surprising considering that there are over 200 health conditions that have already been linked to the adverse effects of wheat to human physiology, as documented in the peer-reviewed published literature itself.[i]

In the new study titled “Prolactin May Be Increased in Newly Diagnosed Celiac Children and Adolescents and Decreases after 6 Months of Gluten-Free Diet“, researchers aimed to assess the prolactin (PRL) levels in newly diagnosed pediatric celiac disease patients, and if found to be elevated beyond normal ranges (a condition known as hyperprolactinemia), to observe what would happen if they were put on a 6-month gluten-free diet (GFD).
