Can A Gluten-Free Diet Help A Possible Non-Gluten Sensitive Individual?

Friday, January 26th, 2018

Studies are showing an increase of Celiac Disease diagnosis’s in the United States.  United Kingdom has also noticed a marked increase of cases. A great many of individuals who have not been diagnosed have opted to change their diet to Gluten-free.  Others that show no obvious symptoms or other diseases also opt to go Gluten-free.  Is this a good idea?

Changing to a Gluten-free diet can help with many autoimmune diseases.  The first and most obvious one is Arthritis.  A Gluten-free diet cuts down on the inflammation that is associated with Arthritis.  A Gluten-free diet may cut down on the inflammation and deformity associated with Arthritis.  Because this diet cuts down with the inflammation, it also cuts down with the pain. Diabetes is another disease has a connection with food.  Diabetics should consume  less carbohydrates.  A Gluten-free diet helps with this.  Cardiovascular disease is another disease that is helped with diet change.  As stated above, using a Gluten-free diet helps decrease the amount of inflammation in your body.  This helps limit the risk of Ischemic heart disease.  More studies are analyzing the relationship between a Gluten diet and heart disease.  Healing the wall of the intestinal mucosa is another benefit of a Gluten-free diet.  By consuming only a Gluten-free diet, the lining of the wall is not attacked and is allowed to heal.  This helps, not cures, IBS and other related intestinal diseases.

Many people who are avoiding Gluten are emerging into different groups.  The first group is women and senior citizens.  The other group is athletes including Olympians and other champions.  They are finding the health benefits in their lives with the Gluten-fee diet.  However, studies are not conclusive yet on all the benefits.
