There are several problems with this approach: In the absence of effective food-based therapy, many people who are ill will simply avoid gluten-containing foods. If they do, the immune reactions can develop to include antibodies, an autoimmune disease that may not respond to gluten, or both. And when the immune system does not respond to the diet itself, symptoms may be worse than when they began; it's as if there isn't enough gluten to make the body feel better, but the food is the problem. Even worse, many of the foods that people avoid are probably good for them in that they are packed with vitamins, fiber, and other nutrients and can help keep the body healthy.
This means they will become more likely to develop the autoimmune disease if it continues, and the damage done can be severe. In summary, the treatment of gluten and related symptoms with gluten-free diet or food-only therapy is likely to increase your risk of developing more serious conditions, and may in some cases lead to more severe ones and even death. As a result, this approach uses the gut to block the immune system by making the stomach digest the foreign protein and to make the body produce the digestive enzyme, bile acid, that removes the protein from the gut. The digestive enzymes also produce substances that act on the mucous membranes of the mouth, the esophagus and the anus. These methods are not effective, even when the body is tolerant of the foreign protein. If a person is allergic to a particular component of the diet, then the person is intolerant of that protein.
If a person is unable to digest the foreign protein, then they develop a severe form of the protein allergy, such as anaphylaxis, a life-threatening allergic reaction. In fact, anaphylaxis is rare when the immune system tolerates the foreign protein. It occurs anti viral 4% of all cases of allergy to milk and 2% of cases of anaphylaxis to other proteins. It is a rare and serious allergic reaction, with potentially life-threatening complications. There seems to be a relationship between the sensitivity of the body to foreign proteins and the severity of the allergy. Anti viral is the more the sensitivity is decreased, the more severe the reaction. In some people, the reaction does not cause serious problems.
