Celiac Disease Symptoms
Many patients and health professionals do not realize just how many health problems can stem from celiac disease.
The list below contains over 300 Signs, Symptoms, Associated Disorders and Complications directly or indirectly resulting from celiac disease that can be found only in Recognizing Celiac Disease.
How can one disease state cause such a huge variety of health issues?
Although gluten can directly affect and damage tissues, the answer lies in nutrition and the effect of nutrient deficiencies on the body. One or two nutrient deficiencies can cause a host of health problems that are seemingly unrelated. Correct the deficiencies and you correct the problem.
Only Recognizing Celiac Disease presents the symptoms and the nutritional deficiencies that cause them. It tells you which nutrient deficiencies cause which symptoms. It explains how the tissues and organs are damaged. It connects the dots between seemingly unrelated symptoms and their causes so patients and health professionals can work together to identify the true sources of their health problems and correct them.
