Injured intestines results in weight loss, bloating, diarrhea, gas, abdominal cramps and nutritional deficiencies. If gluten is removed from the diet the intestinal lining will not be damages or has a chance to heal. Many with celiac disease remain on a gluten-free diet throughout their lives. Removing gluten from your diet is not easy. Grains are used in the preparation of many foods. Reading the ingredient’s name may not disclosure the inclusion of gluten. Examples would be oats.
