Gluten Free - Latest Food Fad >>

Recently many people have switched to a gluten-free diet to shed excess pounds. Gluten-free food was limited to organic food stores for years & has now become the latest dietary trend. Many restaurants now offer gluten-free menu.

Celiac patients cannot bear even smallest quantity of this protein called gluten as it is enough to cause trouble. Gluten activates an immune response that damages the lining of the small intestine. This causes problems in absorption of vital nutrients from food, & can cause various problems like bone problems, d nerve damage, and infertility to name a few.

Gluten sensitivity can create symptoms similar to celiac disease without the intestinal damage. Earlier celiac disease was diagnosed by elimination process. Today with advancement in medicine, it can be identified with a simple blood test for the presence of antibodies against a protein called tissue transglutaminase. A biopsy of the intestine confirms the diagnosis.

Avoiding gluten means more than just giving up on traditional baked items and alcoholic beverages. Gluten exists in many other products, including frozen foods, some foods made with “natural flavorings,” vitamin and mineral supplements, some medications, and even toothpaste. This makes adopting a gluten-free diet tremendously taxing.

Avoiding gluten completely can create some nutrition related deficiencies. Fortified food such cereals have become a good source of vitamin B. Alternatives like breads made with gluten-free flours are becoming more common, they are generally not fortified with vitamins. This can be a problem for anyone, especially for women who are pregnant or may become pregnant. They need vitamin B9, more commonly known as folic acid, to prevent birth defects.

Taking a gluten-free multivitamin, multi-mineral supplement is a good idea for anyone trying to avoid gluten. Consult a doctor before going gluten free. Once a person has avoided gluten for a while, it becomes difficult to envisage if a person has celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, or neither.
