MAINTAIN A GLUTEN FREE DIET

Celiac Disease

Treatment

Signs/Symptoms

In some people who are exposed to gluten in their diet, an enzyme called tissue transglutaminase changes the gluten into a chemical that causes an immune response, leading to inflammation of the lining of the small intestine. The normal villi that make up the lining of the intestine are blunted and destroyed, preventing the normal absorption of nutrients from the diet.

Prognosis

There is no way to prevent this disease

Patients who begin a strict, gluten-free diet immediately after diagnosis have the best chance of living a healthy and active life. Full recovery can take a few months to several years.
