Gluten free diet: because it hurts when you are not celiac
Gluten-free diet: because it hurts when you are not celiac. When you suffer from celiac disease, a gluten-free diet is the only therapy possible. In fact, it is gluten that triggers the autoimmune reaction that leads to the destruction of intestinal villi typical of this pathology. Excluding any food contaminated with gluten, the gluten-free diet extinguishes this reaction by allowing the intestine to heal and eradicate intestinal disorders, nutritional deficiencies and increased risk of coronary artery disease.
