About Celiac Disease
Celiac Disease is an autoimmune digestive disease that damages the villi of the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food triggered by the consumption of a protein called gluten. The term autoimmune basically means a person with CD’s body attacks itself when the person eats anything containing wheat, barley or rye, all of which contain gluten.
