Consuming a high-fiber diet during pregnancy lower risk of celiac disease for the baby, study suggests
Researcher at the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) found that for every 10g more fiber women ate each day, their children’s risks for celiac disease declined by eight percent.
Consuming a high-fiber diet during pregnancy lower risk of celiac disease for the baby.
By eating plenty of broccoli, beans, fruits, potatoes and other high-fiber foods while carrying a baby, a woman may be able to help protect her child from developing celiac disease, the Norwegian study suggests.
Celiac disease causes gluten intolerance, in which the immune system mis-identifies gluten from wheat, barley and rye as a pathogen and tries to fight the small intestine, causing diarrhea and other gastrointestinal problems.
There’s no cure for celiac disease. It can be managed by eating a gluten free diet, but any bit of wheat or barley could trigger the symptoms of celiac.
