It is easy to control and create a gluten-free space in your home. When you are a busy professional or always at the office, it can become a little more difficult at times. Business lunches and dinners with clients & co-workers are common. It is something that most times, can't be avoided. Food is important in the workplace but it doesn't have to be stressful. And, remember, people simply just don't get how sick you can get from eating a small bite. You have every right not to explain or discuss if you don't want to. Your health is a private matter that is your choice to discuss with co-workers if needed.
What exactly is Celiac Disease?
According to the Mayo Clinic, Celiac disease, sometimes called celiac sprue or gluten-sensitive enteropathy, is an immune reaction to eating gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. If you have celiac disease, eating gluten triggers an immune response in your small intestine. Over time, this reaction damages your small intestine's lining and prevents it from absorbing some nutrients (malabsorption). The intestinal damage often causes diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss, bloating, and anemia, and can lead to serious complications.
There's no cure for celiac disease — but for most people, following a strict gluten-free diet can help manage symptoms and promote intestinal healing.
