Celiac Disease is a medical condition in which the lining of the small intestine is damaged by a substance called gluten. The body’s immune system reacts to the gluten and causes inflammation in the intestines. One of the symptoms of Celiac Disease is digestive problems such as abdominal bloating, diarrhea, pain, weight loss, gas and pale stools. There are other symptoms like severe skin rash called dermatitis herpetiformis, low blood count, growth problems, seizures, tingling sensation in the legs, joint and bone pain, muscle cramps, sores in the mouth and missed menstrual periods.
Celiac Disease can leave a person susceptible to other health problems including: Osteoporosis, miscarriage or infertility, birth defects, seizures, growth problems in children and cancer of the intestine, which is a rare case. For most people, eating something with gluten is harmless. For others, an exposure to gluten can cause, or trigger, celiac disease to become active. Sometimes surgery, pregnancy, childbirth, a viral infection, or severe emotional stress can also trigger celiac disease symptoms.
