Episode 113: All Things Gluten with Mala Setty, MD
Nov 1st, 2019 by theownersmanual
In this episode, I visit Mala Setty, MD, a pediatric gastroenterologist, in her satellite office in Walnut Creek, CA to discuss Celiac Disease and gluten sensitivity. We explore some associated conditions, how these conditions might present and what testing is commonly done to diagnose them. We also discuss when a child's primary care physician might do testing themselves and when a referral to a pediatric GI specialist might be indicated.
The segments "Pediatric Fun Facts" and "Parenting Horror Stories" continue. A phone in question regarding the safety of energy drinks in teens is answered.
