Celiac disease is an autoimmune intestinal disorder caused by intolerance to gluten. In people who suffer from celiac disease, gluten damages the absorptive surface of the small intestine which impairs the body’s ability to absorb nutrients. The classic symptoms of the condition result from inflammation affecting the GI tract, causing diarrhea and poor absorption of nutrients. Inflammation and poor nutrient absorption may lead to problems affecting many other organs and systems of the body in affected individuals. The Canadian Digestive Health Foundation reports that celiac disease affects about 1 in 133 Canadians.
Recently digestive health has received a lot of attention in the health & wellness and food industries. This is because digestive health is so closely linked to the body’s overall health and mental well being. The Canadian Digestive Health Foundation reports that three quarters of Canadians suffer from occasional digestive problems, while 20 million Canadians suffer from digestive disorders each year. A great deal of digestive health issues can be resolved and improved through diet changes, such as avoiding gluten and lactose.
