Celiac Disease (CD) is an autoimmune condition that can develop at any age and leads to a chronic digestive disorder which damages the small intestine. When gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye is consumed, an immune reaction occurs. Over time, this constant inflammatory immune reaction damages the lining of the small intestine leading to medical complications that can prevent absorption of important nutrients. The classic symptoms are diarrhea and vomiting. Other symptoms include bloating, gas, fatigue, anemia, and osteoporosis. There are no treatment options presently available and for sufferers of CD, a strict gluten-free diet is the only way that can help manage symptoms and promote intestinal healing. Research is being conducted to study other factors that may increase a person’s chances of developing celiac disease. Some experts believe that changes in the microbiome could play a role in the development of celiac disease.
