Yes BistroMD has a Gluten Free Program!

Celiac disease also known as gluten intolerance, is an immune reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. This disease affects about one in 141 people in the United States.  When someone with celiac disease consumes gluten their immune system reacts by destroying the part of the small intestine that absorbs vital nutrients. This malabsorption can lead to serious illness.

Symptoms of Celiac Disease

Symptoms of celiac disease can include:

  • bloating
  • gas
  • diarrhea
  • weight loss or gain
  • constant fatigue or weakness
  • headaches
  • infertility
  • depression that does not respond to medication
  • abdominal pain
  • bone pain
  • anemia

The only treatment for celiac disease is to follow a gluten-free diet. When gluten is taken out of the diet, the small intestine heals and a return to full health can be expected.

BistroMD Creates a Gluten Free Diet

BistroMD has help for those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance with their approach to dieting and being gluten free.

People who follow a gluten-free diet may have low levels of certain vitamins and nutrients in their diets. Many grains are enriched with vitamins. Avoiding grains with a gluten-free diet may mean eating fewer of these enriched products.

BistroMD are looking after your vitamins and nutrients in your diet and making sure that you’re getting enough of these key nutrients:

  • Iron
  • Calcium
  • Fiber
  • Thiamine
  • Riboflavin
  • Niacin
  • Folate

People with celiac disease who eat a gluten-free diet experience fewer symptoms and complications of the disease.

Finding the time sometimes to go to the grocery store, to cook healthy meals or even make a gluten-free food list, can be hard you may want to consider another option like a diet meal delivery service. When you have gluten intolerance, eating right is very important and BistroMD has many gluten-free options and a customizable menu that will work for you and help with your weightloss goals.
