What is Celiac Disease?
Celiac disease is a genetic disorder affecting children and adults. According to the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research, it affects affects 1 out of every 133 people in the United States. People with celiac disease are unable to eat foods that contain gluten, which is found in wheat and other grains. In people with celiac disease, gluten sets off an autoimmune reaction that causes the destruction of the villi in the small intestine. Celiac sufferers produce antibodies to attack the gluten, but the same antibodies also attack the intestine, causing damage and illness. [University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research]
