What is a Gluten-Free Diet?
A gluten-free diet started as an important treatment for celiac disease. The small intestine of a person with celiac disease cannot digest gluten. The symptoms of this serious disease vary. Not everyone has stomach pains or digestion problems. That’s why an accurate diagnosis of Celiac disease is a life-changer. The first thing doctors advise their patients to do, is to eliminate all foods containing gluten, and wheat is top of the list. The switch to a gluten-free diet has an immediate effect. Yet recently, it's not only people diagnosed with celiac disease that adapt a gluten-free diet.
