What is Celiac Disease?
According to Beyond Celiac, Celiac disease is a serious genetic autoimmune disease. It is triggered by consuming a protein called gluten, which is found in wheat, barley and rye. When people with celiac disease eat foods containing gluten, their immune system responds by damaging the finger-like villi of the small intestine. When the villi become damaged, the body is unable to absorb nutrients into the bloodstream, which can lead to malnourishment.
Left untreated, people with celiac disease are at-risk for serious health consequences, like other autoimmune diseases, osteoporosis, thyroid disease, and even certain cancers.
Health Benefits of a Gluten-Free Diet
A Gluten-Free diet has become popular for people without Celiac disease. In general, a Gluten-Free diet is in line with a choice to avoid or limit the amount of processed foods you eat. Many processed foods contain a lot of gluten, artificial flavors and unhealthy oils. A Gluten-Free diet can help with healthy weight, better food choices including more fruits and vegetables, and avoiding unhealthy oils and carbohydrates. It can also help to increase your intake of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals because of your healthier food choices.
Always consult your physician before any change in your diet.
