What is Celiac?
TheCeliac Disease is an allergy, a sensitivity of the small intestines concerning the protein GLUTEN which is lifelong and becomes chronic. Cereals like wheat, barley, rye and oat contain GLUTEN.
Food is dissociated in the small intestines into its components and enters blood over the mucosa of the intestines. Convolutions in the intestines which are called VİLLUS protrusions and which are present in the small intestines in great numbers ensure that our bodies receive sufficient food. Because of the allergy within the mucosa of their intestines the villus protrusions and convolutions of persons suffering from celiac who have consumed food contain in gluten are reduced due to damages and get smaller. Because of this the surface of the intestines constantly decreases and food consumed more and more becomes in-absorbable. As a result, lack of nutrition and respective indications of illnesses occur.
