If you have been tested for Celiac and the results were negative, you may still benefit from a gluten free diet because it is estimated that substantial proportions of the population suffer from sensitivity to wheat. This may not be the auto immune disease and therefore may not show up in a blood test or even in a biopsy but it may still cause debilitating symptoms similar to those discussed. Further complications which are common include buzzing in the head, brain fog, pms, adrenal fatigue and weight gain. If you are planning to have a test for celiac do not stop eating gluten before your test as it may impair the results.

Celiac, Gluten Intolerances and Gluten Free Diet.

Food Intolerance Test at Dublin Vitality Centre, South Dublin City Centre, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4. First of all, let's start by understanding what Coeliac disease is? Celiac disease is an inherited autoimmune disease which results in sensitivity to the rye, wheat, barley and oats. When eaten, an autoimmune reaction causes the small intestine to attack its own walls. This decreases absorption of nutrients from the other foods we eat which results in undigested matter in the digestive system. (Thompson T, 2006). On an ongoing basis, the gluten in these foods causes permanent damage to the cells of the intestinal wall. Therefore those with celiac / coeliac disease should follow a gluten free diet. A gluten free diet means no food containing rye, wheat, barley and oats.

Those who are not celiac / coeliacs may also be sensitive to the gluey sticky protein in gluten even if they do not have celiac / coeliac disease, as this sticky material can clog up the digestive tract. Nutritional experts agree that gluten is a major culprit for slowing down digestion and particularly in relation to bowel issues such as bloating, gas, IBS constipation and diarrhoea, weight loss or weight gain. So, if you suffer from any of these symptoms and you have not been able to find a cause, you would be well advised to try a gluten free diet, even if you are not a celiac / coeliac. (Marsden K, 2003).

Commonly celiac / coeliac disease can lead to diarrhoea and weight loss, nausea, cramps along with fatigue. However, just as common, in undiagnosed celiacs are constipation and weight gain, irritability, bloating, gas, depression and feeling tired all the time. So if you have these symptoms on an ongoing basis, you need to get to your doctor's office for a medical blood test. This is different from a food intolerance test as celiac is a disease and not an intolerance.

So what can you eat if you are celiac / coeliac or if you wish to avoid gluten? In the table below is a breakdown which should be kept for easy reference:

Grains containing gluten should be avoided. The most common grains to avoid include; wheat, rye, oats, spelt and barley. Gluten FREE Grains which you can eat include; corn, rice, quinoa, buckwheat, gram or lentil flour (Holford P, 2010)

Before you start your new gluten free life plan, you should consider giving your bowel the attention it deserves. A course of colonic irrigation may help you to get your bowel back to optimum function quickly. It also acts as a gauge to help you measure how successful your new gluten free diet is. But first you must detox your body and remove gluten which may be residing in your colon before the good diet can take effect. You can judge if you are getting better by taking note of improvement in bowel function.

On a gluten free diet you can enjoy fresh meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruit, nuts and most unprocessed food. Check the label on all frozen meats, burgers, milkshakes, chocolate, cheese and any food that is processed or canned. You will find that many of these foods are gluten free but some are not. Ensure all sauces soups and dressings are gluten free as gluten is commonly used to stabilise or thicken. Homemade is best and most delicious. Ingredients such as modified starch can contain gluten. Corn flour can be used to make your own sauces.
