The History of Pain: History of Celiac Disease

There is one thing that I would like to talk about today, and that thing is the history of celiac disease. Celiac disease is one of the many diseases that have today riddled humanity. It is an infamous disease that stems from gluten consumption and it is basically a disease that propelled the anti-gluten hipster movement (little did those hipsters know that gluten is basically safe as long as you do not have the gluten sensitivity). Because of how infamous it is, it is only right for us to talk about how it can be as infamous as it is today. In today’s History of Pain, I want to show you a bit about the history of celiac disease.

The history of celiac disease timeline: why does celiac disease exist?

A long time ago, in a country far far away, humanity gathered fruits from the trees and meats from the animals of the wild. They did so to preserve themselves, to prevent them from dying of hunger. One moment not far from that very own, some kinky caveman thought that perhaps people can drink milk from a cow’s udder much like they can drink milk from their women. And so that dorky caveman embarked on a journey to drink from a cow’s udder. The dorky caveman succeeds in life and found out that cow’s milk is as drinkable as a human’s one. Turns out nothing bad happened to his body and he proceeded to drink the nectar that the cow gave him. That dorky caveman became people who are not riddled with celiac disease.

Another caveman, this time a bit smarter than the dorky caveman back then, thought that perhaps one can eat the oval things that popped out of a chicken’s butt. And so the smarter caveman ate the oval thing that popped out of a chicken’s butt. That smarter caveman also became people who are safe from celiac disease.

However, there are some cavemen who drank milk and ate eggs and right after developed an unknown disease in their body. This disease, the celiac disease, keeps going on and on in their bloodline, hence why there are people of the present time who still got a celiac disease (these people are weak some might say, but each to their own).

So if people ever ask why celiac disease exist, you can tell them that celiac disease exists today because of the continuation of a weak bloodline. I know that is a bit tough on those with celiac disease, but it is the truth. That is why the family history of celiac disease is a thing to consider before you can apply for celiac disease test.

Is it possible for someone with no family history of celiac disease to get celiac disease?

It is possible, but at the same time highly unlikely. Celiac disease can be seen as a genetic disease because it is very hereditical, but there are cases where people with no family with celiac disease get celiac disease. Perhaps the gene pool was not being nice to those particular people at the time of their inception, who knows?

That is all I have regarding today’s article. Hope I can help you get to know better about the history of celiac disease.

The System of Symptoms: Celiac Disease Symptoms in Children

In today’s article, there is an interesting thing that all of us need to know, and that interesting thing is celiac disease symptoms in children. Celiac disease is a malady that can strike people of any age and any dispositions, and that is why it is a disease that is somewhat dangerous when left untreated. While some people believed that celiac disease is just like a bigger allergy (in which the thing will go by itself as people grow older), many kinds of research have shown that celiac disease is not a disease that will leave the host’s body by itself. It needs to be treated, and the faster you can treat it, the faster it will go.

Naturally, we will always want to prevent rather than cure, right? That is why it is important for you to understand about symptoms of a particular disease. Just like any major diseases out there, celiac disease does have its own symptoms to be considered. These symptoms are most apparent when the patient has not reached puberty yet, so you might want to look at these symptoms and see for yourself whether or not there are celiac disease symptoms in a child of yours.

So without further ado, let us begin:

Celiac disease symptoms in children: is it readily apparent?

No, actually. You need to understand your children first before you can deem them riddled with celiac disease. What do I mean by that?

First thing first, I want to tell you that the foremost sign of your child having a celiac disease can be found within their eating habit. If your children do not like to eat lots of food or if they have low appetite, there is a chance that your children got the celiac disease in them.

This is what I mean when I say that you need to understand your children first before you can test them for celiac disease. If you know your children well, you will probably know about their eating habit. If you do not know them, there will be a high chance of misdiagnosis from you. What happens when you see your child not eating lots of food and when you bring him to the doctor, the doctor said that the child is just someone who doesn’t like to eat lots of food? Would it not embarrass you?

Alternatively, a change in eating habit can also be one of the many celiac disease symptoms in child, so you can look for that as well.

Any other celiac disease symptoms in a child I should know of?

One more thing: if your children are somewhat delayed when it comes to puberty, then you might want to bring them to the doctor and get the children tested. A delayed puberty is a major thing that may tell you about whether or not your children got celiac disease, and if you do not treat them immediately, puberty will hit them MUCH later. The swollen belly can also be a sign of celiac disease, but make sure that your kid is not just fat on the belt before you tell them that they got celiac disease.

That is a little about celiac disease symptoms in children.
