Preventing Further Damages of Gluten

As advances in medicine progress and get more intricate, people these days get to know a lot more about certain food allergies. Lactose intolerance and seafood allergies are among the most common ones but health experts nowadays are able to identify some people’s problems with ingesting substances like iodine and food dyes, among many other allergy-inducing compounds. Furthermore, gluten intolerance or celiac disease has been making a major buzz these days. Read on and be enlightened.

Gluten is a protein composite found in foods processed from wheat and related grain species such as rye and barley. When people intolerant of gluten or those sensitive to it consumes any food that contains gluten, it brings about damage to the intestines. The reason behind this is the immune response created by the villi in the small intestines.

Sooner or later, if a gluten intolerant individual keeps on consuming gluten-containing food, it will smash up these intestinal villi until they lose the ability to properly absorb nutrients from the food that one eats.

Actually, this condition is not merely an allergy but a disease that is of genetic roots. That said, if you know that someone in your family or a relative perhaps, they should have themselves screened or tested to avoid further damages to their digestive tract. Unfortunately, you are also prone to having this condition since, like I said, it’s genetic.

If you let this condition go one without doing something to somehow bring it to an end, you are on the road to developing other serious health problems such as osteoporosis, anemia, neurological issues, gallbladder and pancreatic malfunctions, and so much more.

Prevention is better than cure. Go see your doctor as soon as possible.
