Food Intolerance and Celiac Disease Self Tests
Food intolerances and allergies are a growing phenomenon, in particular due to specific lifestyle habits. The most widespread are milk intolerance, wheat, egg and soy one, mainly spread among children, who consume them more. Food Intolerances consist of an adverse reaction by antibodies towards particular foods. They are different from allergies because they occur gradually and proportionally according to the quantity of food assumed, object of intolerance. It’s probable that there is an inherited correlation to the onset of the disorder, but it is equally true that there are other factors contributing to the development of the disease, such as: particular pathologies, unbalanced diet, stress and alterations of the intestinal bacterial flora. In particular, celiac disease is defined as a permanent gluten intolerance, a substance contained in wheat and composed of gliadin and glutenin. It is more precisely an autoimmune pathology that involves the digestive process of the small intestine. It is the gliadin, the protein component of gluten, that provokes a reaction by the immune system, responsible of intestinal inflammation.
