Celiac disease a genetic autoimmune disorder that is triggered by the ingestion of gluten – a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. When an individual with celiac disease eats food containing gluten, it sets off a reaction that causes inflammation and damage to the intestines. That damage can interfere with the absorption of nutrients and lead to numerous additional health problems. Currently, the only treatment for celiac disease is a strict, lifelong gluten-free diet.
