Celiac disease is autoimmune disorder occurring in genetically predisposed people. Celiac disease causes damage to the small intestine upon ingestion of Gluten. Gluten triggers immune response and damages villi lining found on the small intestine resulting in blocking the absorption of nutrients in small intestine. Symptoms associated with celiac disease are chronic diarrhea, abdominal distention, malabsorption and loss of appetite.
Currently the only treatment of celiac disease is to follow strict Gluten free diet. Undiagnosed Celiac disease leads to long term health complications and are prone to Type I diabetes and multiple sclerosis, neurologic conditions like epilepsy, migraines, intestinal cancers, anemia, dermatitis, osteoporosis etc.
