Whats celiac?

If you’re someone who can’t eat gluten without feeling like you’ve just consumed shards of glass, chances are that you have celiac disease. Don’t worry; it’s not as bad as it sounds.

Introduction to Celiac Disease

Celiac disease is a genetic autoimmune disorder, which isn’t the same thing as being possessed by the devil—even though they might sound similar, given their Latin roots! Simply put, if you have celiac disease then eating even minute amounts of gluten triggers your immune system to attack your small intestine. Your immune system treats gluten like an intruder and unleashes an army of antibodies against it in a misguided attempt at defending itself from this so-called invader.

Gluten Sensitivity vs Celiac Disease

Some people think that celiac disease is the same thing as gluten sensitivity or allergy. It’s actually quite different—the symptoms stem from opposite sides of our immune systems.

People with celiac disease react to gliadin—NOT gluten—which is one component found in wheat protein (the other component being glutenin). They experience an allergic reaction because their bodies mistake gliadin for something really awful and declare war on everything else around them–even microwaves (kidding).

On the other hand,people experiencing sensitivity reactions exhibit gastrointestinal issues and sometimes skin rashes after consuming food containing wheat—or specifically any type oflectin proteins—that haven’t been broken down properly during digestion‌. So yes, there’s a difference between these two things!

Diagnosis – How Do I find out if I have Celiac?

While doctors can order blood tests to detect antibodies that are indicative of celiac disease before subjecting you to a small bowel biopsy, there’s no guarantee you’ll get a definitive diagnosis.

Consider the simple & direct advantages’ of observing whether cutting off wheat from your diet improves or eliminates these symptoms as a way to test yourself without going through all those needles !
