Gluten Sensitivity and Celiac Disease fall under a wide spectrum of conditions that originate from intolerance to Gluten. Gluten is a composite of protein that is found in wheat and other grain based foods.
These disorders are caused by the consumption of gluten, which causes an inflammation of the small intestine. This inflammation affects the body’s ability to absorb nutrients from food and can lead to a number of problems as a result of this.
Both gluten sensitive and celiac disease sufferers show some similar array of symptoms including diarrhea, bloating, fatigue and weight-loss. However there are also a number of differences, including –
|Inflammation due to Gluten||Disappears when gluten is removed from the diet||Inflammation persists|
|Effect of other body parts||Does not affect||Destroys the inner lining of the small intestine|
|Genetic Influence||Not hereditary||Thought to be genetically inherited|
Both disorders require an immediate removal of gluten from the diet. In the case of Celiac Disease, prolonged suffering without treatment can lead to life-long consequences and even cancer.
The best thing to do is seek immediate medical attention to relieve yourself from both the temporary symptoms and prevent long-lasting negative impacts on your body.
