Celiac Disease



What is Celiac Disease?

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder characterized by an abnormal immune response to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, and other related grains. When individuals with celiac disease consume gluten, their immune system mistakenly attacks the lining of the small intestine, leading to inflammation and damage to the intestinal villi, which are small finger-like projections responsible for nutrient absorption.

How did celiac disease start?

In the 1940s, Willem Karel Dicke, a Dutch pediatrician, proposed the theory that wheat protein was responsible for triggering celiac disease. Dr. Dicke made this connection during World War II when bread became scarce in the Netherlands.

Common signs of celiac disease include:

  • Constant (chronic) diarrhea or constipation.
  • Weight loss.
  • Gas.
  • Pale, bad-smelling stool.
  • Unexplained low blood count that makes you feel tired (anemia)
  • Tingling, numb feeling in the legs.
  • Missed menstrual periods (linked to too much weight loss)
  • Infertility.

Celiac disease can also cause bone density loss and a decrease in spleen function (hyposplenism).

Symptoms of celiac disease in children

Children with celiac disease are more likely to experience the following digestive problems:

  • Stomach pain or vomiting
    • Diarrhea
    • Pale, rotten-smelling faeces
    • Belly bloating or swelling
    • Loss of weight

Causes and Risk Factors for Celiac Disease

According to research, celiac disease has no known cause. It often runs in families and may be affected by specific genes. Stressful medical events, like a viral illness or surgery, can cause it. A pregnancy or a psychological trauma could also.

If a parent, sibling, or other member of your immediate family has celiac disease, you have a one in ten chance of getting it yourself.

Diet and Celiac Disease Treatment

Medication is not used to treat celiac disease. The best thing you can do is change your diet.

If a product is not specifically marked as gluten-free, avoid eating it. Examples of such products include:

  • Noodles or pasta
  • Crackers
  • Breading \Pancakes
  • Gravies and sauces
  • Bread, cake, and other baked items made with beer
  • Cereals

Because commonplace items like toothpaste and prescription medications may contain gluten, it’s important to read the label.

If you are severely undernourished, your doctor may recommend gluten-free vitamins and mineral supplements, and if you have a skin rash, they may also recommend medication.

After a few weeks of eating a gluten-free diet, your small intestine should begin to heal and you’ll start to feel better.

The mode of delivery in early life has a substantial effect on the gut flora. A vaginally delivered infant is initially colonised by the mother’s vaginal and intestinal microbiota. In contrast, the baby is first exposed to skin and hospital environment bacteria during a Caesarean section. Recent studies also suggest that bacteria can be transmitted from mother to child through the rectal canal.
