Can anyone tell me cure for celiac sprue, it's really bothering me. I have lost weight. Help to gain weight & look better. Anu

Celiac sprue is a disease that affects the small intestine in your body. The disease results in an allergic reaction of the lining of the small intestine. The lining become intolerant to gluten content in the food eaten by you. This results in an inflammation, which affects the lining of the intestine. The affected small intestine is unable to absorb the nutrients in the food that you eat. This results in nutritional deficiencies and weigh loss. Celiac sprue is a disease that is related to your heredity; that is, if you parents had it, then you will have it too. Typically you will suffer from diarrhea and pain in your abdomen. You may also find that your teeth are discolored, that you feel tired very easily and that you suffer from skin rashes or even mouth sores. However, it is always better to get this diagnosis ratified by your doctor.

You will need to avoid any food products that contain wheat, rye and oats. Instead, you can eat food made out of potato starch or tapioca starch. As long as you read the ingredients carefully on food that you buy, you are safe. If you cook food for yourself, you can be as wildly inventive as possible and despite eating a gluten free diet, be as healthy as anyone else.
