Doctors treat celiac disease by helping patients follow a gluten-free diet. Gluten is a protein found naturally in certain grains, such as wheat, barley and rye.
Gluten is also added to many other foods and products. In patients with celiac disease, the consumption of gluten triggers an abnormal immune system reaction that damages the small intestine.
Symptoms improve greatly in most celiac disease patients who follow a gluten-free diet. Following a gluten-free diet will heal the damage to the small intestine and prevent further damage.
Recall that International Celiac Awareness Day is celebrated on May 16 to spread awareness of the disease, which affects about 1% of the world's population and whose prevalence has increased many times over the past twenty-five years.
