Gluten-Free Diets : Food Sources, Role in Celiac Disease & Health Benefits, Hardback Book

Gluten-Free Diets : Food Sources, Role in Celiac Disease & Health Benefits Hardback

Edited by Raymond Tobias Langdon

Description

Gluten-free diet (GFD) is the cornerstone treatment for celiac disease (CD).

This condition is a chronic, systemic, autoimmune disorder caused by a permanent intolerance to gluten proteins in genetically susceptible individuals.

In these subjects, the consumption of gluten causes damage of the small intestinal mucosa characterized by a dense lymphocyte infiltration and villous atrophy, leading to malabsorption of both macro- and micronutrients.

This book discusses food sources and the role of gluten-free diets in celiac disease.

It also discusses the health benefits of consuming a gluten-free diet.
