Celiac Disease Awareness: SGT University’s Approach to Diagnosis, Treatment and Education

With so many medical advancements happening, it has become so easy to diagnose the prolonged underlying health diseases that have led to death as they were not detected on time and were left untreated. Earlier, celiac disease was not much noticed, especially in Indians, but now it is getting common, and a lot of health issues arising due to it are reducing. Let’s discover this blog to understand what celiac disease is and how SGT University is helping to fight against it.

What is celiac disease?

Celiac disease is an illness caused in the small intestine by an allergic reaction to gluten. Gluten is a protein naturally found in wheat, barley, and rye. This disease is commonly known as a wheat allergy. In this case, the small intestine is allergic to gluten and incapable of its digestion.

 How is it diagnosed?

 Its diagnosis requires blood tests and biopsies of the small intestine.

 Symptoms of Celiac Disease:

  • Bloating
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Gastric issues
  • Lactose intolerance
  • Loose, greasy, bulky, and bad-smelling stools
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Pain in the abdomen
  • Weight loss
  • Iron deficiency
  • Mouth ulcers
  • Bone or joint pain

People with celiac disease also have high chances of acid reflux, heartburn, or GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), whereas it is not the main cause of these symptoms.

Problems arising due to Celiac Disease

Celiac disease is a critical health condition. It can lead to various severe health risks if not taken care of. Some of the severe illnesses that happen as a result of celiac disease are:

  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Intestinal lymphoma
  • Intestinal cancer
  • Intestinal tuberculosis, etc.

Treatment and preventive measures

The only cure for celiac disease is following a strict gluten-free diet as prescribed by the dietician.

SGT University: Best Colleges for Allied Health Sciences

At SGT University, the department of nutrition and dietetics under the Faculty of Allied Health Sciences is working hard to help people deal with celiac disease. They help people with gluten allergies by providing them with a customized diet chart according to their health and body requirements.

There’s no permanent cure for celiac disease, but only preventive measures. Only a gluten free diet can keep you away from problems caused by gluten intake.
