On Overview on Celiac disease
Celiac disease which is even known as the celiac sprue and the enteropathy which is known to be
gluten sensitive and it is basically the autoimmune and digestive disorder which results in the
damage of lining of small intestine while foods with gluten which are eaten. However, Glutens are
form of protein which is found in few grains and damage to intestine makes it quite hard for your
body to absorb the nutrients, particularly fat, iron, calcium and folate.
Now the question is what are the main causes of celiac disease, the immune system of body is
designed for protecting it from the foreign encroacher. When the people having celiac disease eat
the foods that contain gluten, the immune system begins to forms the antibodies to gluten that attack
the lining of intestine. It causes the inflammation in intestines and also damages villi which are hairlike structures over lining of small intestine. Moreover, nutrients from the food are usually absorbed
by villi. If villi get damaged, person is unable to absorb the nutrients properly which finally ends up
as malnourished, in spite of the quantity which she or he eats.
The main celiac disease symptoms which are often observed by the patients are mentioned below:

Celiac disease treatment is not such specific which is effective with medicine however it is
suggested to follow celiac disease prevention measure. If you have the celiac disease, you will not
be able to eat the foods which comprise gluten which include rye, wheat, oats and barley. Dropping
the consumption of gluten from diet generally enhances to condition in just few days and yet ends
