How to prevent celiac disease symptoms from worsening

Fact Checked

gluten-free diet

Story at-a-glance -

  • Research by Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) showed that glyphosate destroys the villi in the gut and lessens the body’s ability to absorb vitamins and minerals
  • Always remember to check food labels thoroughly because there are “gluten-free” foods that might still contain traces of this protein

While celiac disease can’t be prevented, you can avoid a severe onset of symptoms and further intestinal damage by following these tips:1,2

Eating a gluten-free diet By removing gluten-containing foods from your diet, you’ll be able to inhibit your body’s immune response against this substance. Some sources of gluten that you should eliminate from your meals include: 3

Wheat, barley, rye and triticale

Wheat flours and processed meat products

Sweets

Sauces and seasonings

Drinks and baked goods

Always remember to check food labels thoroughly because there are “gluten-free” foods that might still contain traces of this protein, as some manufacturers tend to abuse the use of this label for the sake of profit.4

Avoid consuming grains and grain byproducts, especially wheat — Most people could benefit from a gluten-free diet even if they haven’t been diagnosed with this illness. This is because harmful herbicides like Roundup are sprayed on whole grain crops like wheat.5 These chemicals contain glyphosate, which can trigger celiac disease and gluten sensitivity.6

Research by Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), showed that glyphosate destroys the villi in the gut and lessens the body’s ability to absorb vitamins and minerals.

Glyphosate then disrupts the connections between wheat proteins, causing the grain to become indigestible. This chemical also plays a role in gut dysbiosis, overgrowth of pathogens, leaky gut syndrome, immune system defects and increased inflammation.7

Diagnosing the disease as early as possible — Even if you aren’t experiencing symptoms, you should be tested for celiac disease, especially if you have relatives with the disorder, as genetics can play a role in the onset of the disorder.8

Pregnant women can lower their child’s celiac disease risk

Celiac disease can affect multiple family members. The University of Chicago Medicine Celiac Disease Center points out that 1 in 22 people with celiac disease have a first-degree relative with this illness, while 1 in 39 celiac disease sufferers have a second-degree relative with the same health problem.9 However, mothers may help reduce their child’s risk for celiac disease by:

Staying on a strict gluten-free diet while pregnant — If you have celiac disease, you should be consistent in following a gluten-free diet during your pregnancy. Gluten consumption during pregnancy can make the disease active and lead to malabsorption of nutrients in both the mother and child, and can be a risk for miscarriage.10

Considering a genetic test for the baby — Your doctor can check if your newborn baby carries the genes associated with celiac disease. If the result is positive, an antibody blood test should be performed once the child turns 3 years old. This determines if the disease has become active in the child. If your child is already exhibiting symptoms of celiac disease, consult a doctor and have your child checked.11

Introducing gluten slowly into your child’s diet — A study published in the Archives of Diseases in Childhood found that introducing small amounts of gluten into an infant’s diet while they’re still breastfeeding may help lower their risk of celiac disease by 52%.12

Watching out for celiac disease symptoms — By keeping an eye out for the warning signs of celiac disease in your child, you’ll be able to catch the condition before it worsens and provide your baby immediate relief from their symptoms, which include vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, irritability and failure to thrive.13
