This post has a couple interesting items:
- Arsenic levels were not increased in individuals with celiac disease who were consuming a gluten-free diet
- Cellphones: There are good reasons for physicians to avoid giving out their cellphone numbers to patients
- Enuresis -most patients respond to bedwetting alarms
RD Watkins et al. Practical Gastroenterology; 2018; 42: 12-6. In this retrospective review of 39 patients (with available arsenic levels), patients with celiac disease (adult & pediatric) had normal and/or undetectable arsenic levels. The mean duration on a gluten-free diet was 2.35 years for pediatric patients and 3.31 years for adults.

E Apos et al. J Pediatr 2018; 193: 211-6. This study showed that enuresis treatment with a bedwetting alarm system was effective in 76% of patients (n=2861) and that mean treatment time to achieve dryness was 62 days. The most frequent age group was 6 years to 10 years of age.
