Celiac Disease And Other Digestive Disorders by anamaulida

        <p>Celiac disease is also known as sprue, nontropical sprue or
gluten- sensitive enteropathy. <a rel="nofollow"
href="http://goshgo.com/celiac_disease.html">Celiac disease</a> occurs to
people who cannot tolerate gluten, a protein substance present in barley,
wheat and rye. Celiac disease is a digestive disorder. There are also
other digestive disorders that are often confused with celiac disease
like the irritable bowel syndrome.<br><br>Irritable bowel syndrome or IBS
is often confused with celiac disease. IBS is considered to be the most
common disorder. In North America, there is about 20 percent of Americans
believed to have some form of IBS. Unfortunately, the treatment for IBS
is not the same for celiac disease patients. There are times when celiac
disease patients would not receive the appropriate treatment and can take
a long time before the correct diagnosis is made.<br><br>Patients with
IBS should ask their physician to make sure that they don’t have any
celiac disease. Medical researches in Britain have found a high rate of
celiac disease with patients with IBS. The British study found that the
chance of having celiac disease was seven times higher for patients with
IBS.<br><br>IBS causes however, are not well understood. There are
several studies saying that it has something to do with the central
nervous system. There are changes in the nerves that control sensation or
muscle contractions in the bowel. The bowels of the intestines contract
irregularly, meaning that food is pushed too quickly or
slowly.<br><br>IBF effects are more likely to be emotional than physical.
Some IBS patients find it hard to lead a normal, happy life while
experiencing the digestive disorder. But people with IBS have been found
to have a lower chance to develop more serious or life-threatening <a

diseases</a>. Although this is reassuring, this does not mean that
serious diseases cannot occur separately.<br><br>Another digestive
disorder is the inflammatory bowel disease. This is the name of a group
of disorders that cause the intestine to become inflamed or red and
swollen. The inflammation lasts a long time and usually comes back over
and over again.<br><br>A germ or by immune system problem may cause the
disease. The disease is not contagious however, inflammatory bowel
disease, like celiac disease, does seem to be hereditary.<br><br>Celiac
disease is also misdiagnoses, sometimes, as Crohn’s disease. Crohn’s
disease is an inflammatory bowel disease. It causes ulcers to form in the
gastrointestinal tract anywhere from the mouth to the anus. Symptoms may
include stomach cramps and pains that comes and goes and blood in the
stool. Similar to celiac disease, Crohn’s disease patients also
experience diarrhea, sick feeling in the stomach, unexplained weight loss
and tiredness.<br><br>Crohn’s disease gets treated depending on the
status of the gastrointestinal tract. When the disease is mild, medicines
may still help. But for sever cases, steroids are generally used. There
are times that even surgery may be necessary, but it cannot cure the
disease.<br><br>There are about 95 million people affected by digestive
problems every day. Digestive disorders are one of the primary reasons
for physician visits. It is important to get medical attention for
digestive disorders since digestive diseases are very complex. They may
have subtle symptoms and their causes may be unknown. Identifying or
reaching a diagnosis need a thorough and accurate medical history and
physical background since some digestive disorders can be
hereditary.<br><br>If we re what we eat then we should take care of our
digestive system. A digestive disorder or digestive disease like celiac
disease is impossible to ignore. Undermining celiac disease and other
digestive disorders means undermining our total health and would
eventually threaten our lives.<br></p>        <!--INFOLINKS_OFF-->
