Do You Have Celiac Disease?
Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition. It is not an allergy or food sensitivity, although you can have more than one condition related to eating gluten.
When a person with celiac disease ingests even one breadcrumb of gluten, the immune system goes into attack mode. Perceiving the gluten molecule or fraction to be an invader, the inflammation that results harms the villi within the lining of the upper small intestines.
Malnutrition and malabsorption issues result.
