Celiac disease is an autoimmune issue that impacts the digestive system when you eat sources of gluten. Gluten is a substance present in many types of grains. When this protein enters the small intestine, it prompts an autoimmune response. When this occurs, over a certain period, this autoimmune response could injure your small intestine lining and inhibit your body from absorbing specific critical vitamins.

Celiac disease is a genetically inherited disorder seen particularly, although not exclusively, in individuals of Northern European genes. Celiac disease is the most prominent inherited condition in Europe. Certain research demonstrates that 1 in roughly 133 people in the United States has the condition. For more details regarding care for celiac disease in Phoenix, AZ and recommendations to appropriately manage it to help you live your life in the best way, contact Arizona Digestive Health and schedule a visit with our experienced doctors.

The indicators associated with celiac disease could differ and be specific to each individual. Due to the amount of fluctuation in effects, it might be difficult to tell if you are dealing with celiac disease. Some individuals develop celiac disease early in life, while some could first develop signs as an adult. Signs could fluctuate considerably among young individuals and older people.

A few of the indicators of celiac disease include:

  • Anemia
  • Canker sores
  • Diarrhea
  • Discolored teeth
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Thinning bones
  • Feeling irritable
  • Weight loss
  • Joint discomfort
  • Fatigue
  • Bloating or gas
  • Less frequent bowel movements
  • Itchy skin rash with blistering
  • Tingling or numbness in the feet or hands

When you experience a few of these indicators, especially after eating foods with gluten, contact our Phoenix, AZ gastroenterology office to arrange for a visit.

At the present time, there are no pharmaceuticals that directly treat or eradicate the results that gluten-containing foods have on those who experience celiac disease. The most vital step to take for your well-being if you experience celiac disease is to purge foods with gluten from your diet, but partnering with the doctors at Arizona Digestive Health can allow you to best manage your GI wellness. By avoiding gluten, you can be symptom-free so the tissue inside the small intestine will return to normal. Gluten-containing foods include:

  • Some condiments
  • Pasta and bread
  • Baked treats
  • Certain packaged products, including canned soup or breakfast cereals
  • Grains including barley, rye, and wheat

EAST VALLEY GASTRO- Dr Panossian: The most caring physician I have seen in years. Not that the others have been bad, he is just several notches above. He is very upbeat, great bedside manner with exceptional communication. Took his time and seemed to really care to find the cause of my belly pain- even suggesting possibilities outside of his scope of practice. He's definitely one of the good ones. I'd recommend him to anyone!
