If you have celiac disease, maybe you should gobble, gobble, gobble

So, OK, if you have celiac disease (disclaimer: I do, I do), you should read this study in Science Transactional Medicine, although I have to admit that it is a bit hard to understand.

Well, at least it was for me (so another disclaimer: I relied on experts to interpret it for me).

Bottom line is that tryptophan seems to have some role in celiac disease (CD) expression so if you take in more tryptophan, your CD should improve.

And where can you easily get tryptophan?

Turkey meat.

Does that mean you could go off your gluten-free diet if you eat lots of turkey?

Absolutely not.

Just means your CD might be less of a threat to your overall long-term health.
