Celiac disease

Gluten is a protein found in each every one of the forms of wheat, rye, oats, and cereal hybrid grains related.

When people with celiac disease consume gluten, the microvilli of the intestine are damaged preventing the absortion of essential nutrients.

The long- term effects of gluten in celiac disease can be life threatening.

However, with a gluten-free diet, the damaged part of the gut can cure, allowing to celiac patients lead a normal life as long as their entire diet is free of gluten, since trace quantities of that protein can cause synthoms even cause a total relapse to the patients.
