Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggered by the ingestion of gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. An estimated 1 in 141 Americans has celiac disease, yet 83% of those who have it are either undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. Celiac disease is genetic, so it's more common in those who have a family history of the disease.
Celiac disease manifests differently from person to person. It can cause a long list of symptoms both in and out of the gastrointestinal tract. These include recurring abdominal bloating and pain, weight loss, bone pain, anemia, fatigue, and in children and infants, delayed growth and failure to thrive.
The only treatment is a gluten-free diet - for life.
Following a gluten-free diet will usually greatly improve and may even completely resolve symptoms, heal existing intestinal damage, and prevent further problems. Improvements can begin within days of starting the diet. Healing completely involves a restoration of the intestinal villi that can absorb nutrients from food into the bloodstream as well as keep the gut from leaking.
