Celiac disease also known as celiac sprue or gluten-sensitive enteropathy, is an immune reaction to consuming gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye.
When people who suffer from celiac disease consume gluten, it triggers an immune response in the small intestine. Over time, this reaction damages the small intestines lining and prevents it from absorbing some nutrients. This intestinal damage often leads to diarrhoea, fatigue, weight loss, bloating and anaemia, and can cause severe health complications.
Symptoms of celiac disease include.
• Nausea and vomiting.
• Bloating and gas.
• Abdominal pain.
• Weight loss.
Some of the things you consume that causes celiac disease include.
1. Baked foods
Baked foods such as doughnuts, cakes, pastries are made with wheat flour or other gluten-containing grains. As such, people with celiac disease should avoid these foods.
2. Processed foods
Many processed foods such as cheeses, canned soups and other popular items may also contain gluten. Endeavour to reduce your intake of processed foods to prevent celiac disease.
3. Bread, crackers, and wraps
Most bread, crackers, and wraps are high in gluten, as a result, too much intake of these foods can trigger celiac disease.
Reduce your intake of these 3 things to prevent celiac disease.
