Celiac disease

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that occurs in genetically predisposed people where the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine.

It is estimated to affect 1 in 100 people worldwide. Two and one-half million Americans are undiagnosed and are at risk for long-term health complications.

Signs & Symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Bone and joint pain
  • Arthritis
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Seizures or migraines
  • Infertility or recurrent miscarriage
  • Itchy skin rash

Treatment Options:

There are currently no medications or surgical options that treat celiac disease. Most doctors will recommend a total gluten-free diet, while avoiding some other foods as well.
