Have you ever heard the expression “Cheaters never prosper”? Well, if you have Celiac disease and you “cheat” and eat something with gluten in it, not only will you not prosper, you could die!
Sounds very dramatic, right? I am serious.
Those of us who have Celiac disease can have devastating effects from ingesting gluten and we might not even notice. Gluten destroys the villi in the small intestine and if the behaviour continues, the body loses it’s ability to absorb essential nutrients from the food. You can literally become malnourished!
I have never cheated since going gluten free in 2007 and I never will. I hope none of you ever will either.
Take care of you,
