What is Celiac and Why Should I Care?
Celiac is a long-term autoimmune disorder that damages a person’s small intestine. It is caused by a reaction to gluten, proteins that are found in wheat and other grains including barley and rye.
Symptoms of Celiac Disease
- Weight loss
- Bloating and gas
- Abdominal pain
- Nausea and vomiting
Symptoms may vary and differ in children and adults.
If you have a family member that has celiac disease, you can also ask your doctor about testing you or someone in the family has a risk for the disease because celiac is a hereditary disease. You can know more about celiac at the Celiac Disease Foundation.
