Celiac disease is an immune reaction to gluten, which is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. When someone suffers from this type of allergy, taking gluten triggers an immune response in the small intestine. In many countries, there is a huge variety of products suitable for coeliacs.
Symptoms can vary greatly depending on whether they are children or adults, but usually include abdominal swelling, nausea and vomiting, gas, constipation and diarrhoea. The best way to avoid allergic reactions to food is to know which ones cause a reaction to eliminate them from our diet. It is advisable to wear a bracelet that explains your condition so that others can help in a time of crisis when you are unable to explain what is going on.
