    How Gluten-free diet can affect your overall nutrition?

    Eliminating gluten from your diet likely alters your overall intake of fiber, vitamins and other nutrients. So, before searching for organic shops in Dubai keep this in your mind. Gluten has the power to affect your overall nutritional needs:

    • In Celiac disease the lining of the small intestines is impacted. In this autoimmune disorder, gluten activates immune system functions. This results in poor absorption of nutrients from food.
    • In addition to celiac disease, Gluten may cause certain sensitivities in the body like abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhoea, constipation, foggy brain, rash or headache—here immune system plays a part, but the process is complicated to understand. 
    • Another autoimmune disorder caused by gluten is - Gluten ataxia. Here muscles & nerve tissues are impacted. Patient encounters problems with muscle control and voluntary muscle movement.
    • Wheat allergy- This is like that of other food allergies. It is the response of the body against viruses or bacteria found in gluten. Here your body system develops an antibody to the protein. Congestion and breathing difficulties are common symptoms.
