Going Gluten Free: Study Shows Gluten Free Diet Causes Intestinal Disease, Nutrient Deficiency [VIDEO]


As part of Celiac-Disease Awareness Month this May, Celiac Disease Center's pediatric program Gastroenterologist Norelle Rizkalla Reilly at Columbia University found out that increased and completely out of proportion interest of going Gluten free diet has effect in the probable development of celiac disease and deficiencies in folate, iron and thiamine.

The discrepancy between those who see gluten free diet as healthy versus the risk it may concur in the body has gained massive gap in the past 10 years. Going Gluten free diet requires careful practice and deliberate implementation. Reilly has been worried that the medical context of this kind of diet has slipped out. Her observations are published in the Pediatric Journal.

Gluten free diet has been commercialized and seen as best alternate for rice. But the risk if not carefully done, it can take a person with celiac disease from symptom-free to incapacitated in short order deteriorating the lining of small intestine.

Ergo, people who do not have Celiac disease are the only ones who may enjoy the benefit of going Gluten free diet. According to the global survey of 30,000 people last year, those who take the diet have grown from one percent of people to 21 percent. Millennials' number tendency to "avoid gluten" became closer to one in three.

Researchers in Spain evaluated 206 gluten-free food products along their counterparts that contain Gluten. The team found "marked differences" in the caloric and nutrient contents. The researchers concluded that this represents a nutritional concern for celiac patients which could also be a risk for non-celiacs who munch through gluten-free foods, from a study published at Research Gate,

Reilly asks physicians to educate people that this data is not okay. Their legion has to put accurate information regarding the "avoid Gluten" bent to the public, she told in the medical journal. As Reilly put it, Anything that could potentially disrupt detection of this disease should be avoided.
