One in every one hundred Americans suffer from Celiac Disease.
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.
What is Gluten?
A protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. Common symptoms are diarrhea, bulky foul smelling stools, flatulence, vomiting, bloating and constipation.
Over time, celiac disease can cause anemia, infertility, weak and brittle bones, an itchy skin rash called dermatitis herpetiformis, or other health problems.
The most common symptoms are diarrhea, flatulence, bulky foul smelling stools, vomiting, anorexia, bloating, and constipation.
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 intolerence.
It is important to make sure that you are communicating with your physician and that you are receiving the right evaluations and diagnostic testings.
