About Celiac Disease

Celiac disease (also known as Coeliac, Celiac Sprue, Non-tropical Sprue, or simply CD) is a genetic, autoimmune disorder. In people with CD, eating gluten (a type of protein found in wheat, barley, and rye) starts a reaction in the gut that causes damage to the small intestine. This damage causes the small intestine to lose its ability to absorb nutrients found in food, leading to malnutrition and a variety of other complications.

CD symptoms vary from person to person and from age to age. Some people with CD are "asymptomatic" (no symptoms at all) ? except for the damage to their intestine, unbeknownst to them. If no action is taken to repair this damage, it can lead to serious medical problems, such as intestinal cancer. (That is why proper diagnosis is so important.) Fortunately, most of this intestinal damage and other symptoms will improve by adhering to a strict gluten-free diet.

The symptoms of Celiac Disease can include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Migraines
  • Weight loss⁄gain
  • Constipation
  • Headache
  • Malnutrition
  • Fatigue
  • Abdominal cramping

There are also a number of other symptoms. Because the body does not receive all the nutrition it needs in people with CD, symptoms can vary greatly from individual to individual, often leading to misdiagnosis.

Please consult your physician if you have some or all of these symptoms, or if you have a family member with these symptoms. Celiac disease is believed to affect 1 in 133 people. Because it is a genetic (i.e. hereditary) disease, your chances of having Celiac disease greatly increase if you have an immediate relative with the disease. If someone in your family has been diagnosed with CD, we strongly recommend getting tested yourself. CLICK HERE For Testing Info


What is Gluten Intolerance?

Gluten Intolerance or Gluten Sensitivity presents with many of the same symptoms as celiac disease. People with Gluten Intolerance are unable to tolerate gluten and have an adverse reaction when they consume gluten. If you have Gluten Intolerance, just like with Celiac Disease, your health will improve when you follow a strict gluten-free diet.

Gluten Intolerance has not been well researched but, there is significant clinical evidence to support the condition. Because of the lack of research, there are no medical tests for the condition. Diagnosis is done through an elimination diet.

You can learn more about Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance at our race. We will have printed information and you can talk with people who live with these conditions. You may also find these sites useful:

You mean it's NOT all in my head?

From Dr. David Perlmutter: (MD and author of Grain Brain)

This week, Columbia University announced a “breakthrough” in our understanding of how gluten relates to health issues. Their findings, published in the journal Gut, revealed that the complaints gluten-sensitive people (those with non-celiac gluten sensitivity) experience are a consequence of a disruption of the gut lining – what has come to be called “leaky gut.”  Read more -

 

 

 

Sue Seward is a Holistic Health Coach and home chef, who suffered from a host of undiagnosed health symptoms for over twelve years.  As she sought to get to the bottom of her deteriorating health she realized that food, namely gluten and wheat, was closely linked to their every symptom. After hitting rock bottom in 2008 barely able to function she started  self-experimentation and research and came to believe that healing her gut was critical to becoming well and being able to live life to the fullest again.  Her new found love of cooking and eating turned its focus toward nourishing and healing her body with each forkful. Since there weren't as many reliable resources available to her in 2008, she decided to start the Gluten Free Lady blog to share her experiences and knowledge with others as they begin to travel this journey to optimal health. Sue is especially passionate about counseling private clients and coaching them towards vibrant health and healing through real wholesome food.
