CELIAC AND GLUTEN INTOLERANCE


Celiac disease is an inherited, autoimmune disease in which the lining of the small intestine is damaged form eating gluten and other proteins found in wheat, barley , rye, and oats. The symptoms of this disease may not show up until there is a large stressor in one's life, such as pregnancy, a major illness, death of a family member, divorce or any other big life stress. Recent studies have confirmed that there is another form of this disease that is call the "Silent Celiac disease". There are not the usual gut symptoms of traditional Celiac disease, but more neurological symptoms. This type of Celiac disease(CD) is much more difficult to diagnose.

43% OF Americans are genetically predisposed to celiac disease and 81 % are predisposed to gluten intolerance.


CD affects up to one in 100 Americans, although only one in 8 are estimated to be aware or their condition, as symptoms are often silent, as in the "Silent Celiac Disease".
