A Healthy Gluten-free Life

Are you sensitive to Gluten?

Gluten sensitivity is also known as gluten intolerance which means that a human body reacts to some particular proteins named as gluten. Food items like barley, rye and wheat contain quite high levels of gluten.

Gluten intolerance is one of the most common diseases nowadays. This intolerance or allergy affects the digestive system of the human body. The disease is not contagious but is rather inherited. The small intestine, where the nutritional elements are absorbed from the food, gets affected by this specific disease that is gluten intolerance. The protracted immune response ends up in the swelling of the internal lining of the small intestine and averts the absorption of certain nutrients.

There are some home based tests that can reveal if you are gluten sensitive or not; a proper gluten free diet can reveal the truth in a short period of time, i.e. 2-3 weeks. Avoiding 100% gluten containing food for one or two weeks could be another way of testing gluten sensitivity in a body. There is no such medication that averts this condition but simply a gluten free diet can do the miracle.
