About Celiac

People with celiac disease may not know they have it because they may not feel sick. Or if they feel sick, they don’t know celiac disease is the cause. It can also be masked by classic symptoms of other disorders and can often be confused with wheat intolerance.

  • Celiac disease is a digestive disorder that attacks the lining of the small intestine when the body’s immune system reacts to the consumption of gluten.

  • Sometimes even a tiny amount of gluten will create this reaction in the body.

  • The damaged caused in the small intestine prevents the body from getting the nutrients it needs.
