Coeliac disease is caused by a reaction to gluten which is a protein found in wheat, rye and barley.
The disease cannot be cured and there is no medication – the only answer is to cut gluten out altogether.
A person suffering with coeliac disease can damage the lining of their gut if they eat gluten.
If a gluten-free diet is not followed forever, the disease can lead to nutritional deficiencies and is linked with osteoporosis.
Coeliac disease is also linked to cancer of the small bowel and unexplained fertility problems.<... Daily Express :: Health Feed
