Villi Stop Functioning- Becoming Reason Of Malabsorption
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Celiac disease is an intestinal disorder, which damages its protective lining and stops the absorption taking place there. There is no age limit specified for this disease. It can occur any time from infancy to old age. One can use precautions to stop it, but there is no prescribed cure. Although some of the factors causing this disease are known, yet medical research is unable to prescribe an ultimate treatment of the disease. Only relative remedies are suggested. The cause is known, symptoms are discovered, yet the answerable question is, its final and ultimate cure.

It is revealed in medical research that it happens mainly due to the infection or the damage of villi, which play a key role in absorption of various nutrients, which are very necessary for normal growth of the human body. A known factor is gluten, which is a white protein mainly found in wheat, rye, barely and some of medicines. This protein causes the infection and thus damages the villi forming the absorption lining of small intestine. As a result the person is deprived of important minerals, vitamins and other nutrients. Consequently the patient becomes the victim of malnutrition.

People having celiac patients in their family, are more prone to the disease as it is thought to be genetic. Its symptoms vary and stop the normal growth of body in some cases. People can start feeling permanent fatigue, and many complain of weight loss. The major reason that the disease becomes severe is its late-onset diagnosis. In many cases the patient does not know, because he does not feel any obvious symptoms of food intolerance. Sometimes this is due to the lack of immediate impact of symptoms directly following ingestion of a food item containing gluten.

Anyhow there are various ways which assist in its diagnosis. A celiac disease test, blood tests, are the first line of investigation. After diagnosis all patients are suggested the same remedy i.e. long time gluten free diet. No medication exists that can prevent the damage of villi, or keep body safe from the attack of the disease. If one follows strict adherence to the gluten free diet, the result is the healing of intestine, and helps in resolution of all symptoms. This is only possible when the patient is aware of which food is gluten free. Along with the gluten free diet, an arm's distance should be kept for all celiac disease patients from those daily products which contain high concentration of gluten. With a gluten free diet, villi start functioning slowly and the absorption process suffers with it.
