I've been diagnosed and treated for RA for a little over 10 years. I also seem to have some gluten sensitivity--gluten causes IBS-type symptoms that are eliminated when I eliminate gluten from my diet. A gluten-free diet does not seem to help the RA, but I've now seen several articles discussing a possible link between gluten sensitivy and RA. Does anyone know if this is a valid claim? Can gluten be the root cause of many of our autoimmune diseases?
