What is it celiac disease?

Celiac disease is a chronic, immune-mediated mainly intestinal process, caused by the ingestion of some cereals like wheat, barley, and rye. It is important you know that celiac disease is not just a gastrointestinal disease. It can be gastrointestinal and non-gastrointestinal symptoms, too. People are diagnosed with the symptoms – diarrhea, malabsorption, loss of weight, impaired growth but not with the original disease: celiac. That’s why gluten ruins their bodies for a very long time.

It’s an autoimmune disease that is not treatable with medicals. You have just one treatment: gluten free diet forever. It is hard to diagnose because of similar symptoms to other diseases. Celiac has a genetic factor, too. At most of the diagnosed people was shown genetic factor – as by me. HLA-DQ2 and HLA-DQ8 are the genetic factors cause celiac disease.

How many people can be touched with this?

Celiac disease affects approximately 1-2% of the general population all over the world and is on the increase, but most cases remain unrecognized, undiagnosed and untreated, exposing patients to the risk of long-term complications.

How can you diagnose celiac?

Diagnosis is typically made by a combination of blood antibody tests and intestinal biopsies, helped by specific genetic testing. Warning: some diagnostic methods can take false results: bioresonance.

Other diseases caused by gluten

Non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS)

NCGS is similar to the celiac disease at the forever gluten free diet. Symptoms are similar to celiac disease without a positive blood test or gastroenterological tests by celiac.

Most of the people’s symptoms’ are:

  • headache,
  • chronic fatigue,
  • fibromyalgia,
  • atopic diseases,
  • allergies,
  • neurological diseases,
  • psychiatric disorders – and so on.

It’s a newly discovered disease, treatment is gluten free diet.

Wheat allergy

If somebody has a wheat allergy, he has allergic reactions after consumption of food containing wheat. It’s not an autoimmune disease than an allergic one. If you have a wheat allergy, you can eat food contains rye or barley. The allergic reactions go fast after eating wheat: from minutes to hours. This are gastrointestinal reactions. Treatment: avoid wheat.
