Celiac disease is an immune disease in which people can't eat gluten because it will damage their small intestine. If you have celiac disease and eat foods with gluten, your immune system responds by damaging the small intestine. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. It may also be in other products like vitamins and supplements, hair and skin products, toothpastes, and lip balm. There are more than 300 symptoms of celiac disease, and symptoms can be different from person to person. Your doctor may diagnose celiac disease with a medical and family history, a physical exam, blood tests, an intestinal biopsy, a skin biopsy, and genetic tests.

If you have symptoms of celiac disease, especially ones that last a long time, you should ask your doctor for a celiac disease blood test. Celiac disease affects each person differently. Symptoms may occur in the digestive system, or in other parts of the body. One person might have diarrhea and abdominal pain, while another person may be irritable or depressed. Irritability is one of the most common symptoms in children. Some people have no symptoms.

When the body's immune system overreacts to gluten in food, the reaction damages the tiny, hair-like projections (villi) that line the small intestine. Villi absorb vitamins, minerals and other nutrients from the food you eat. If your villi are damaged, you can't get enough nutrients, no matter how much you eat. Celiac disease occurs from an interaction between genes, eating foods with gluten and other environmental factors, but the precise cause isn't known.

Infant feeding practices, gastrointestinal infections and gut bacteria might contribute to developing celiac disease.Sometimes celiac disease is triggered or becomes active for the first time after surgery, pregnancy, childbirth, viral infection or severe emotional stress.

Foods To Avoid

. beer . bread . cakes and pies
. candy . cereals . cookies
crackers . croutons . gravies
. imitation meats or seafood
. oats . pasta . processed lunch meats, sausages, and hot dogs
. salad dressings

. self-basting poultry . soups

Dangers Of Celiac Disease

1. Lactose intolerance. Damage to your small intestine may cause you to experience abdominal pain and diarrhea after eating lactose-containing dairy products, even though they don't contain gluten.
2. People with celiac disease who don't maintain a gluten-free diet have a greater risk of developing several forms of cancer, including intestinal lymphoma and small bowel cancer.
3. Malabsorption of calcium and vitamin D can contribute to reproductive issues like infertility and miscarriages.
4. Loss of calcium and bone density (osteomalacia or rickets)
5. The damage to your small intestine means it can't absorb enough nutrients.
