Newly Diagnosed Celiacs Needed for Study in Chicago
Article originally published on Celiac.com. I felt this was interesting information to share with my readers. Although I don't agree with quote from Dr. Sohi about the gluten-free diet being "so difficult to adhere to", I do think this is an interesting study that Chicagoans should participate in if they live in the area.

Rush University Medical Center is currently recruiting patients with celiac disease for a study on the impact of Mind/Body medicine on adherence to a gluten-free diet.

"The gluten-free diet is so difficult to adhere to, and it is the only treatment for celiac disease; with our study we are hoping that the mind/body medicine course will assist people with newly-diagnosed celiac disease stick to the diet," states Dr. Sunana Sohi, a Fellow in Gastroenterology at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago.

According to Dr. Sohi, the study is looking for people recently diagnosed with Celiac disease in the Chicago area (within the past 4 weeks) or those who have only been on a Gluten free diet for 2 weeks or less. "If the person meets our enrollment criteria, they will be enrolled in one of two 8 week Mind/Body medicine courses, free of charge."

Dr. Sohi is optimistic that this study will have a positive impact on Mind/Body medicine and represent a new tool in the treatment of patients with celiac disease.

For more information about the study, please contact Rush University Medical Center at 312-942-1551
