Case Study - When Eating Makes You Sick (KEY)
This case study was created for distance learning and is a short exploration of how celiac disease affects the digestive system. This is not a long case, and should probably only take 20-30 minutes to complete.
The case starts with Cecilia who is having digestive issues that had previously been diagnosed as irritable bowel syndrome. Students are asked to suggest ways for Cecilia to figure out what types of foods are triggering her symptoms. The case then follows Cecilia through diagnosis and treatment of celiac disease.
The download includes the answer key a student powerpoint file which allows students to follow the case and answer questions within the slides. This activity is available for free at https://www.biologycorner.com/2020/08/15/case-study-gluten/.
