Learn About A Gluten Free Diet

So you think you might have celiac disease because you’ve got recurrent diarrhea, you’re losing weight, and you’ve got abdominal bloating and distension. The first thing to try is to cut out gluten from your diet. Easier said than done. That means no wheat, rye, or barley. Yikes! No pasta or bread. There’s even wheat in soy sauce. But fear not. Now that there’s a lot more awareness of people with gluten sensitivities there are a lot more options in the supermarkets and even in restaurants. There are a number of websites as well that will tell you where you can find gluten-free products, even things like coffee cake and pizza dough. Of course, oats make a great alternative as do some of the nut flours. Quinoa is also a good grain-like substitute.
