Celiac Disease

Do you get an upset stomach whenever you eat bread, pasta, or any wheat-based food product? Then you may be suffering from celiac disease.

RedRiver Health and Wellness Center offers diagnostics and therapy for people with autoimmune conditions like celiac disease. We offer our help to deliac disease sufferers by offering therapy and management plans to ease the symptoms and to improve their quality of life.

A Digestive and Autoimmune Disorder

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that affects the digestive tract. People with celiac disease are sensitive to gluten, which is a type of protein that is responsible for the elastic texture of dough and other products made of cereal grains. Cereal grains include wheat, barley, and rye.

Celiac disease causes inflammation in the small intestine, which, over time, damages the lining of the gut. This may prevent the absorption of nutrients and cause nutritional deficiencies.

Symptoms of celiac disease may include:

  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Bloating
  • Gas and flatulence
  • Swollen ankles
  • Anemia
  • Fatigue
  • Skin rashes
  • Vitamin K deficiency
  • Excessive bruising and bleeding
  • Growth problems in children

Diagnosing the Symptoms

RedRiver Health and Wellness Center provides diagnostic help for deliac disease sufferers. Using our autoimmune disease tests, we can identify what triggers your inflammation.

We manage celiac symptoms by recommending dietary and lifestyle changes, which may include going on a gluten-free diet. Each one of our patients has unique needs, which is why we work hard to provide personalized medical care for each case.
