Celiac disease is a condition which causes an issue with digesting gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, and other grains. For instance, those who have celiac disease or “celiac sprue” might have issues with pizza, bread, pasta, and cereal. Common symptoms of celiac disease may include: 

  • Abdominal pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Weight loss
  • Low appetite
  • Bowel movements that are oily and float
  • Abdominal bloating or feeling full all the time
  • Low appetite
  • Bad gas
  • Slow growth in children 
  • Skin manifestations of itchy skin rashes
  • Weak bones or low iron levels 

Celiac disease causes the body’s immune system to attack the small intestine whenever gluten is consumed. Celiac disease damages the small intestine. There is a hereditary component to celiac disease also, so it may run in families. Celiac disease can affect both adults and children. Celiac disease can not be prevented. Celiac disease can also be triggered by major life events as in surgery, pregnancy, childbirth, emotional stress, or a viral infection. Diagnosis can be made with or without testing. However, speak to a healthcare provider of whether your symptoms fall under celiac disease or any other associated condition.
