July 2008 Mayo Clinic Women's HealthSource Highlights Vitamin D, Savvy Use of Sunscreen and Gastrointestinal Upset and Celiac Disease
Date:7/14/2008

nscreens combine several different active ingredients to protect against both UVA and UVB radiation. Look for oxybezone, sulisobenzone, avobenzone (Parsol 1789) or ecamsule in the ingredients. For those reluctant to use chemical sunscreens, physical sunscreens that combine zinc oxide and titanium dioxide offer broad protection.

Protection: All sunscreens are labeled with a sun protection factor that measures the amount of UVB protection. A higher number means more protection. In the future, sunscreen labels will include a star rating, indicating the amount of UVA protection in addition to the SPF number. Choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher. Broad-spectrum products protect against both types of rays.

It's Important to Know if Frequent Gastrointestinal Upset is Celiac Disease

Frequent gastrointestinal upset can indicate celiac disease, which affects about one in 100 people. But only about one-tenth of those cases have been diagnosed, because celiac disease can present itself in many ways.

Joseph Murray, M.D., a Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist, recommends that people who regularly experience gastrointestinal upset consider a test for celiac disease. In an interview for the July issue of Mayo Clinic Women's HealthSource, he discusses celiac disease, its symptoms, treatment and why a diagnosis is important.

Celiac disease, a digestive condition, is triggered by gluten, a protein found in breads, pasta and other foods containing wheat, barley and rye. When those who have celiac disease consume gluten, an immune reaction in the small intestine damages the lining of the intestine. That damage can interfere with digestion and the ability to absorb nutrients. Symptoms can include diarrhea, bloating, gas and weight loss.

The disease is often mistaken for other disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome or Crohn's disease. Nutritional deficiency caused by celiac disease can lead to anemia, premature osteoporosis
