Summary about Celiac Disease

Celiac disease, an autoimmune digestive disorder, affects the small intestine. Bloating, gas, diarrhea, anemia, and growth issues are all symptoms of celiac disease. Gluten, a type of protein, can cause Celiac disease. Wheat, barley, and rye are all gluten-containing grains. Changing your diet to eliminate gluten from your diet can often help you feel better.

Symptoms of Celiac Disease

Celiac disease symptoms can differ from person to person but may include:

  • Some family members of celiac patients have no symptoms at all.
  • Digestive problems (abdominal bloating, gas, pain, constipation, pale stools, diarrhea, and weight loss).
  • A severe blistering skin rash (dermatitis herpetiformis) and mouth sores (aphthous ulcers).
  • Unexplained anemia or hepatitis.
  • Musculoskeletal problems such as muscle cramps, bone, and joint pain) and defects in the dental enamel.
  • Failures to thrive and growth problems in children. This is because they are unable to absorb the nutrients.
  • Leg tingling is caused by low calcium and nerve damage.
  • Depression

Causes of Celiac Disease

Celiac disease is caused by consuming:

  • Gluten-containing foods such as wheat, barley, rye, triticale, etc.

Treatment

  • Celiac disease can only be cured by eliminating gluten from your diet. Your doctor will tell you how to eat a balanced diet while avoiding gluten. They will teach you how to read food labels for gluten-free ingredients.
  • You should not stop eating gluten until you have been diagnosed with gluten intolerance. If you remove gluten too soon, your test results might be thrown off, leading to an incorrect diagnosis.

Preventive Measures of Celiac Disease

Celiac disease is unavoidable. However, its early detection and management may help to avoid serious complications.
