Australian cardiologist Dr. Mak Daulatzai believes non-celiac gluten sensitivity has the potential to contribute to Alzheimer’s disease development. Gluten sensitivity may appear in people who don’t have celiac disease. In some people, the gastrointestinal system perceives gluten as a noxious substance or a threat. As such, inflammation occurs that spreads throughout the body, including the brain. Although he continues researching the topic, Dr. Daulatzai speculates that the adverse reaction to gluten leads to neuron damage.
