Digestive & Liver Disease Center of San Antonio Highlights Celiac Awareness Month
Date:5/14/2013

San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) May 14, 2013

Digestive & Liver Disease Center of San Antonio encourages the public to advocate for Celiac Awareness Month in May.

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggered by the ingestion of gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. An estimated 1 in 141 Americans has celiac disease, yet 83 percent of those who have it are either undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.

There are 300 known symptoms of celiac disease, but they vary and the slight differences can make celiac disease extremely difficult to diagnose, resulting in 95 percent of celiacs undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. If left untreated, people with celiac disease could develop further complications such as other autoimmune diseases, osteoporosis, thyroid disease, and cancer.

Diagnosis can be quite difficult largely because symptoms mimic those of other diseases. Blood tests are the first step in a diagnosis. The only treatment is a lifelong gluten-free diet. Eating gluten, no matter how small the amount, can damage the intestine. Avoid all foods that contain wheat (including spelt, triticale and khorasan), rye, and barley.

People with celiac disease are encouraged to eat a well-balanced diet with a variety of foods, including bread and pasta. In addition, grass-fed meat, fish, fruits and vegetables do not contain gluten, so celiac sufferers can eat as much of these foods as they’d like. Common gluten-free alternatives include: brown rice, corn flower, corn starch, potato flour, soy flour, potato starch, sweet rice.
