Celiac Disease is a immune reaction to eating gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye.

The reaction to eating gluten causes inflammation that damages the small intestine's lining. This inflammation can lead to medical complications. This prevents absorption of some nutrients.

These complications include:

  • Diarrhea

  • Bloating

  • Gas

  • Fatigue

  • Low blood count (anemia)

  • Osteoporosis

  • Abdominal pain

  • Nausea and vomiting

  • Constipation

  • Weight loss

Many people have no symptoms. The treatment for Celiac Disease is a strict gluten-free diet. By doing this you may be able help manage symptoms and promote intestinal healing.


  • Treatment can help, however, there is NO CURE!

  • To diagnose properly, a blood test or imaging may be required.

  • This CHRONIC disease can last years or even be a lifelong illness.


If you have Celiac disease or a intolerance to Gluten, the following foods or ingredients to AVOID are:

  • Wheat, including spelt, farro, graham, khorasan wheat, semolina, durum, and wheatberries.

  • Rye.

  • Barley.

  • Triticale.

  • Malt, including malted milk, malt extract, and malt vinegar.

  • Brewer's yeast.

  • Wheat starch.

Celiac disease is not Gluten intolerance or sensitivity, Unlike celiac disease, people with Gluten intolerance do not show they have elevated inflammation and they do not have the antibodies that people with Celiac disease produce. But they do have remarkably similar gastrointestinal symptoms.


Doctors also can’t give a lab test to diagnose someone with a Gluten intolerance. But for both of these groups, going on a gluten-free diet is often the best course of action to control symptoms.

Your doctor may want to investigate if you’re also suffering from another disease that often coexists with Celiac disease, like lactose intolerance or irritable bowel syndrome.
