Celiac disease is an intestinal disorder in which the body produces antibodies against the gluten component found in cereals like wheat, rye and barley leading to malabsorption, weight loss and chronic nutritional deficiencies.
The condition is characterized by a sensitivity to gluten (found in wheat, barley, and rye) that causes inflammation and atrophy of the villi of the small intestine, malabsorption, etc. This sensitivity to gluten may also be seen in dermatitis herpetiformis. Strict avoidance of gluten in the diet will control disease activity, and antibodies to serum markers will disappear with time.
Diagnosing and monitoring celiac disease. Test for celiac disease if you have a strong family history of gluten sensitivity.
