Gluten Free Diet - Master of Substitutions

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. Gluten sensitivity is a condition that is passed out of the body and cannot be digested. Initially not recognized as a medical condition, gluten sensitivity has gained importance as a serious condition. Diet control is the only way to combat this.

Dealing with a rare disorder.

A gluten free diet goes a long way in controlling this condition. Our dieticians at Perfectdiets, after a long study have come up with an action plan to help patients in an unknown condition.

Symptoms of a gluten allergy occur when the allergen comes into contact with the small intestine, causing the immune system to attack the lining of the colon. This attack on the mucosa of the small intestine of a person with an allergic reaction to gluten weakens the stomach and can lead to huge health problems in the future. The delicate coating is responsible for absorbing vitamins and nutrients into our bodies.

If you go out to eat, or take away, you will need to confirm that the foods are gluten-free as a precaution against developing gluten allergy symptoms. You also need to read all the labels on the food when you go shopping. If a food contains gluten it will be clearly stated on the label.
