Coeliac disease

Coeliac disease is a genetically linked condition caused by a lifelong intolerance to gluten in wheat and similar proteins in rye, barley and possibly oats.

Coeliac disease is not an allergy. It is a digestive problem caused by gluten intolerance, which makes the body unable to digest everyday foods containing gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye and barley. Some people with coeliac disease also react to oats.

Coeliac disease causes the immune system to attack to the substances found in gluten causing damage to the small intestine thus preventing normal digestion, absorption of food and leading to inability to adsorb nutrients at all. The symptoms include weight loss, pain, fatigue and depression. Coeliac disease is a serious disease if untreated, so it is essential to stick to a gluten-free diet.
