Gluten intolerance produces painful and inconvenient symptoms. Once diagnosed, treatment of gluten intolerance is easy. Unfortunately, sufferers are often unaware of the reasons for their problems.
Gluten intolerance produces effects due to immunological problem related to protein in wheat, rye and barley. The body incorrectly assumes it is dealing with foreign protein, and launches an assault on its own tissues which creates damage and several symptoms.
Autoimmune reactions lead to severe intestinal symptoms, and these along with malnutrition lead to complications. The villi lining the small intestine are folds that increase the surface area to boost absorption of digested food.
In gluten intolerance villi are damaged and the absorptive surface of the gut becomes smaller. As a result, it is harder to digest and absorb proteins in wheat, barley or rye. Malnutrition is the inevitable result.
