What is the Best Celiac Disease Diet?
So what is celiac disease? According to celiac.org, celiac disease is a serious autoimmune disorder that can occur in genetically predisposed people where the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine. It is estimated to affect 1 in 100 people worldwide. Two and one-half million Americans are undiagnosed and are at risk for long-term health complications.
A patient who is diagnosed with celiac disease is required to start a gluten-free diet. As of present, a gluten-free diet is the only treatment for people who has been diagnosed. Since there are no pills or therapies available, the only way to manage celiac disease is through a strict, 100% gluten-free diet. Celiac disease patients who consume even small amounts of gluten can have continuous damage to their intestines regardless of the absence of symptom.
