When is a gluten-free diet indicated?

In the vast majority of countries, the gluten-free diet is very popular, but little is known about it in Russia. Moreover, there are few special products for it in our country. However, this does not prevent people from eating this kind of food, as this is not particularly difficult.

Thanks to it, you can cleanse your body of slagging, get rid of digestive problems. Children with hyperactivity disorder or autism also need to follow this diet. The gluten-free diet was originally created for people with celiac disease (protein intolerance). Previously, this disease was extremely rare, now this disease is considered a common occurrence. According to statistics, 1 out of 100 people suffer from it.

Celiac disease appears even in infancy, when the baby begins to eat cereals that contain gluten protein (gluten). In young children, the digestive system digests gluten poorly, so the child's immunity perceives this protein as a dangerous object. In this regard, the baby's digestion is completely impaired, the intestinal tract suffers - as a result of which both mental and physical development slows down. Children have diarrhea, anemia, and exhaustion.

A specific drug is not required, the lifeline is gluten-free nutrition, which must be followed throughout life, i.e. refuse to use products containing gluten. The disease is severe in childhood, with a mild form of the disease, people can live until the end of life. As a result, such as diabetes, cancer, lupus, arthritis, diseases of the central nervous system can be directly associated with celiac disease.

In conscious age, the disease often proceeds without a pronounced clinic. If you have problems with digestion, it is better to play safe and donate blood for specific antibodies, you can also go through an endoscopic examination. This disease is treated extremely simply without taking medication - a gluten-free diet will help in the fight against the disease, especially since it is considered the most healthy and balanced.
