A short information about Celiac Disease
May not have heard of celiac disease very much or may know who is suffering from celiac disease. Now what is celiac disease? Celiac disease is a sort of wheat allergy or intolerance to wheat. Now frequently people are coming to understand this disease to know that yes celiac disease exists and this is due to ingestion of wheat.
Because there is a protein called gluten, found in wheat and barley and also a European grain called rye. When a person intake wheat which has gluten, when the person starts suffering from some sort of discomfort may be abdominal pain, or you know the need to go to the toilet, or some sort of loose motions, abdominal pain, nausea or vomiting. Now these are, these may be the initial symptoms. However in children the most predominant symptoms are bloated abdomen, diarrhoea, or chronic diarrhea, then severe anemia which is not responding to iron therapy. Severe iron deficiency and failure to growth.
These are the 3 Signs of celiac disease in children.
Symptoms of Celiac disease would be delayed to appear around 5 years onwards. Thereby the delay in diagnosis does occur in the Celiac disease.
It is not very easy to diagnose as a list of doubts when you are thinking of celiac disease, also there is a presentation which is called as Atypical presentation.
Atypical presentation is Asymptomatic but may be some thyroid issues, some skin allergies, pulmonary issues e.g. Allergic Rhinitis, Asthma or the patient may come to you simply with a diabetes mellitus. Insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. So we have to think that is it really possible for a person to have wheat intolerance or all these symptoms.
Another condition, Typical presentation, Gastrointestinal signs/symptoms predominate such as chronic diarrhoea, abdominal distension, failure to thrive, anorexia, recurrent vomiting.
Yes it is true. But how does it happen?
How this disease does comes. Due to a genetic predisposition, when the HLA Typing, 8 genes are present. Its compulsory to undergo testing for this genes and if the patient is negative for these genes, it is said that they cannot celiac disease.
In addition we have to very sensitive, Serological test, which one is called the anti TTG-IgA and the second test is the anti Endomysial antibody tests. The TTG-IgA test is very easily available and comparatively economical test and it has a very high sensitivity and specificity.
Family history of Diabetes, Thyroid, Wheat Allergy or tolerance also found in the family and request to the patient to undergo an upper GI endoscopy along with a biopsy. Biopsy specimens are taken and these are examined and if the demonstrate that they will I have got damaged and there is a flat mucosa or there is a partial Villous atrophy then the diagnosis of the celiac disease is confirmed.
If the diagnosis of celiac disease is confirmed then we have to stop to eat wheat, barley and rye.
We need to undergo a complete assessment of the patient before stop to eat with regard to the thyroid status, the liver enzymes have to be checked out.
Now can these patients can take a little bit of wheat?
According to Morden mode of treatment, Allopathy science:-
No, unfortunately it’s not, because once the wheat allergy diagnosis that is a celiac disease that is established they cannot take even minimal amount of wheat. However lot of food, gluten free food are available in the market which is not tested, which is not labeled properly, but these patients are helpless to use these foods.
These are hard to treat that means this patient never gets complete recovery.
So once the diagnosis is confirmed we advice to patient that don’t touch to wheat and their products.
