Celiac Disease FAQs – Everything You Should Know About the Disease


What is celiac disease?

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that’s triggered when you eat gluten. Celiac disease is also known as:

  • sprue
  • nontropical sprue
  • gluten-sensitive enteropathy

Gluten is a protein found in foods made with wheat, barley, rye, and triticale. It is also found in oats that have been made in processing plants that handle other grains. Gluten can even be found in some medicines, vitamins, and lipsticks. If you have celiac disease, eating gluten triggers an immune response in your small intestine.

What are the symptoms of celiac disease?
Children and adults tend to have a different set of symptoms.

There’s no cure for celiac disease — but for most people, following a strict gluten-free diet can help manage symptoms and promote intestinal healing. There are certain celiac disease related frequently asked questions that people ask their doctor, so we have compiled all of them.
