High sugar intake + low fibre and mineral intake in GF Diet
The only therapy for coeliac disease (CD) is a long-term gluten-free diet (GFD).
Little is known about the detailed composition of such a diet.

Conclusion:

Dietary sources of Iron

Iron is essential to all body cells. Iron functions primarily as a carrier of oxygen in the body, both as a part of hemoglobin in the blood and of myoglobin in the muscles. Iron deficiency anemia occurs when there is not enough iron in the red blood cells. Because the typical symptoms of iron deficiency have many causes, diagnosis by a blood test is needed to confirm the presence of iron deficiency anemia.

Melatonin Deficiency

In recent years, melatonin has been heralded as everything from snake-oil to miracle cure-all. As is often the case, the truth seems to lie somewhere in between.

The widening spectrum of celiac disease

The classic sprue syndrome of steatorrhea and malnutrition coupled with multiple deficiency states may be less common than more subtle and often monosymptomatic presentations of the disease. Diverse problems such as dental anomalies, short stature, osteopenic bone disease, lactose intolerance, infertility, and nonspecific abdominal pain among many others may be the only manifestations of celiac disease.

Coeliac disease: the great imitator

Western civilisation owes much of its foundation to a strange molecular rearrangement of the chromosomes of wild grasses in the Middle East to produce a high-protein, high-yielding grain — wheat — with six sets of chromosomes. This enabled the nomads to settle down with some assurance of a regular food supply and time to think and develop skills such as writing.
This progress, however, came at a price. Gliadin, the principal wheat protein, presented to sensitised T cells in conjunction with HLA-DQ2 or HLA-DQ8 antigen, leads to the production of cytokines.

Addiction to carbs and gluten underlies excess weight

As much as 75% of overweight people may be addicted through poor eating habits to either carbs or the protein called gluten, which is found in all wheat, rye, barley products. Like any addiction, these cravings are unhealthy and problematic.
