Transcript of Celiac Disease
Celiac disease is a medical condition in which the absorptive surface of the small intestine is damaged by gluten. Your body is then unable to absorb nutrients like proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals which are all necessary for good health.
Who typically suffers from Celiac Disease?
Celiac Disease effects children and adults all over the world. It's more commonly found in females, Caucasians and those with down syndrome and turner syndrome.
Signs, symptoms, and the causes
Is celiac disease preventable?
No, sadly because it's a genetic disease there isn't a way of preventing it, but those with the disease can find simple gluten free diets.
Celiac Disease is genetic, so it gets passed down from parents to offspring. Some of the typical symptoms include anemia, chronic diarrhea, weight loss, fatigue, cramps, and bloating. It's as simple as getting a blood screening test to find out if you have it.
How does celiac disease effect ones food choices?
having celiac disease means absolutely no gluten!!! Things like grains, pasta, cereal and most processed foods have gluten in them. There are also many gluten free options available too and many other healthy food choices like fruits and vegetables that are available.
The problem is when we see things on TV we want them, we see the mcdonalds advertisements and harveys and all of the different fast food restaurants and we cant help but crave those foods and that isn't good for us because those foods aren't what our body needs to stay healthy.
