Myths about gluten
Úvodní obrázek

As if gluten has become the greatest enemy of a person who wants to lose weight or just live healthily. You can read on the internet that gluten glues together intestines and that consuming gluten is not natural for humans. So let's talk about what gluten is.

Gluten is a storage protein in cereals, so it occurs naturally mainly in wheat, rye and barley. Its name is derived from the word "glue", which has nothing to do with the fact that gluten should glue together our intestines. This is a property that gluten adds to the dough – the quantity and quality of gluten is then reflected in the quality of the flour / dough. Thanks to it, the dough is elastic, rise and the resulting product retains its shape. And that the consumption of gluten is not natural for humans? People have been growing cereals in the fields for thousands of years, so why should it suddenly be unnatural or even harmful. Again, this is a myth that is not scientifically substantiated.

Myths about gluten

If you do not suffer from gluten allergy, celiac disease or non-celiac sensitivity to gluten, then there is no reason to stick to a gluten-free diet. This will make you lose fiber and minerals. It is, of course, recommended to limit the intake of white bread and replace it with, for example, wholemeal bread, as is the case with pasta and other foods / products, which are largely made up
of normal wheat. You will get more polysaccharides and fiber, which is the goal of a healthy diet.

Atoda Medical is a private facility and its prices are identical to other facilities of this kind. However, we, the clients, have a bonus in the form of superior services and I stand by that!!! All the doctors, nurses but also the receptionists form a great team in my opinion and I always look forward to this clinic. And I am not a patient who likes everything:-) I have my demands, which I cannot say that they are not met. That's why I have renewed my registration again and probably will remain so in the future. I would like to thank Mrs. Karolína Hrubá, who gained my trust and helped me a lot in a situation I didn't know how to handle.She is a person in her place and a great professional. :-) Thank you also to everyone else .....

I go to Dr. Podstolska with my one-year-old daughter. I am very satisfied with her individual approach, willingness to solve even seemingly small things. Of course, she is professional and friendly at the same time. I'm also glad for the pleasant office with a play rug, heating over the changing table, the possibility to drive a stroller up to the office. The care of the nurses and their assistance during appointments is absolutely above and beyond. I also appreciate the texting system that reminds me of my check-up/exam appointment in a timely manner.
