The truth is that patients should learn a lot, but all that eventually becomes a routine. Cooking gluten-free food requires time and a few other conditions that involve a completely gluten-free and clean environment.
When preparing a meal, a patient must make sure that the food is not contaminated with the remains of gluten food through the dishes, cutlery and a basis for the preparation of food. S/he must take care of everything that comes into contact with gluten foods. Gluten-free diet must be implemented continuously and consistently.
Dishes for the gluten-free food preparation must be special.
Cutlery must be separated.
Gluten-free foods must be separately stored.
It is very important to choose products that are declared as gluten-free for the preparation of food.
Food should not be touched with the floury hands. It is desirable to use foil or greaseproof baking paper for plates or surfaces that might be contaminated.
Places for food storing should previously be well-cleaned or washed.
Oil and water that have already been used for making "forbidden food" shouldn’t be used.
Gluten-free food should be kept separately from other foods to avoid contamination.
ComplicationsThe absence of treatment (gluten free diet) increases the risk of developing numerous very dangerous diseases. Long-lasting damage of small intestine mucosa prevents utilization of nutrients from food, causes hormonal disorders, and may result in the development of very serious and life-threatening illnesses (colon cancer and malignant tumor of lymph tissue - lymphoma).
