CALL FOR ABSTRACT 12THGHUCG TRACK 12: CELIAC DISEASE
What is Celiac Disease?
When a person with a genetic predisposition consumes gluten, they may develop celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder that damages the small intestine. It is estimated that one in 100 people worldwide are affected, but only about 30 percent receive an accurate diagnosis.
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley that triggers an immune response that attacks the small intestine in patients with celiac disease. Villi, the small fingerlike projections that line the small intestine and aid in nutrient absorption, are harmed by these attacks. In order for nutrients to be efficiently absorbed by the body, the villi must be repaired.
Symptoms of Celiac Disorder
Celiac disease symptoms are distinct from food allergy symptoms.
If you have a wheat allergy and consume foods containing wheat, you may experience breathing difficulties and watery, itchy eyes.
Adults with symptoms of celiac disease
If you have celiac disease and unintentionally consume gluten, you may experience the following symptoms:
- itchy rash with blisters (doctors call this dermatitis herpetiformis)
- weariness or headaches
- Continent pain
- Having a bloated or full feeling
- joint or bone ache
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
• 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
- Breading \Pancakes
- Gravies and sauces
- Bread, cake, and other baked items made with beer
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.
