Findings in a recent study carried out by Mayo Clinic have warned that a majority of celiac disease sufferers are not aware that they might be victim of the inherited autoimmune condition.
Celiac disease is a condition due to which the lining of the small intestine is damaged, as a result of which the intestine is unable to absorb portions of food, which are necessary for the body to be in a healthy state.
It has been explained that the damage is due to a reaction to eating gluten, which is found in wheat, barley, oats and rye.
Those suffering from the condition are specially advised to stop eating pizzas, cake, tortillas and prohibited from drinking alcohol.
Julie Dubois, a Cook Children's Hospital Registered Dietitian, asserted that as times have changed, so has the awareness regarding the condition. Being well acknowledged about the condition, there has been a rise in the number of people being diagnosed at an initial stage.
Statistics provided by University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center suggest that an estimated one in 133 healthy people suffers from the condition. Rather, there are many students in the university, who suffer from the condition.
As a result, a club, Gluten Freedom, has been opened for these gluten intolerant students, which also recommends people in the Fort Worth area about gluten-free options.
