I can tell you truthfully that up until very recently I had absolutely no clue as to what a gluten free diet was. I didnt have even a grain of an idea that I could base my knowledge upon. I have since found out however, that gluten is what you would call the protein part of certain grains like wheat, barley, rye or other similar grains. Some people are found to be allergic to the gluten in these grains and so need to have a gluten free diet.
Unfortunately thats not as easy as it sounds. And since a person who suffers from gluten intolerance or celiac disease has to live their whole lives on a gluten free diet to be able to live normal healthy lives, they will need to consult with a doctor or nutritionist first. If they dont get the diet thats right for them, they could be facing many problems.
If you suffer from either of these gluten allergies dont worry overly much however as there is hope. A diet that can suit your special needs can be formulated and you can live a good life. All you need to remember is to stay away from wheat based products. Again that might not be so easy to do, but with help you can find the right gluten free diet for you.
