Leave a comment

The canker sores set its roots into your mouth and are characterized by excruciating pain that aggravates as the time passes by, if not addressed at latest stage. In medical parlance, canker sores are called aphthous ulcers. A canker sore becomes apparent with yellow or white color and is surrounded by an inflamed reddened area but it does not turn malignant. It affects a person regardless of the age bracket they fall under. Even a kid in elementary school is vulnerable to it.

Development of Canker Sores

The canker sores crop up on the inside of the cheek, on tongue, on palate, on the inside of the lips, or at the bottom of the gums. Some researchers have also established that canker sores passes down the generations in the families and the hereditary aspect is also attached to it. In many instances, it has been observed that people, intolerant to gluten, develop canker sores until they give up on eating gluten. Additionally, celiac disease is also attributed to the development of canker sores since it has its roots set in genes and passes on in the genes. Also, it could be the possibility that it remains latent in the genes and does not take shape yet or ever.

Gluten and Canker Sores

The findings of some experts also hold hint to the fact that it is directly associated with the immune system of the body. This could also be related to celiac disease since gluten flattens the villi in the small intestine which does not sustain the absorption of nutrients and the brunt on immune system ensues. As a result, nutritional deficiencies also play a critical role in the development of canker cores.

Healthy Diet to Keep Canker Sores at Bay

In addition, even if a person is not gluten intolerant, a bad diet could also pave the way for the development of canker sores. Some foods do not meet the required dietary since they fall behind on essential phytonutrients, mineral, and vitamins that could foster the growth of canker sores. Generally, deficiency of folic acid and iron triggers the development of canker sores.
