If you’ve noticed that you react badly to wheat products/gluten — with symptoms like diarrhea, stomach upset, abdominal pain, and bloating — see a doctor to get tested for celiac disease. Do that before you start any gluten-free diet.
If you have celiac disease and you eat gluten, the lining of your small intestine becomes inflamed and gets damaged, making it harder for your body to absorb nutrients. That can lead to malnutrition and weight loss.
A gluten-free diet is a diet that excludes the protein gluten. Gluten is found in grains such as wheat, barley, rye and triticale (a cross between wheat and rye).
A gluten-free diet is used to treat celiac disease. Gluten causes inflammation in the small intestines of people with celiac disease. Eating a gluten-free diet helps people with celiac disease control their signs and symptoms and prevent complications.
A gluten-free diet is not optional for people with celiac disease. It is considered a necessary medical nutrition therapy.
