- Causes of Celiac Disease
The exact causes of celiac disease are not yet known; however, as explained in this portion of the eMedTV library, scientists have identified specific genes that appear to play a role in causing this condition.
- Celiac Desease
Celiac disease, as this page of the eMedTV archives explains, is a condition that damages the small intestine. The disease involves an intolerance for gluten, a protein found in some grains. Celiac desease is a common misspelling of celiac disease.

People with celiac disease cannot tolerate gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, and other foods. This eMedTV article takes a look at this disorder, including the damage it can cause in the body, symptoms that may occur, and how it can be treated.
- Celiac Disease and Osteoporosis
As explained in this eMedTV segment, there is a relationship between celiac disease and osteoporosis -- untreated celiac disease can cause osteoporosis. This article explains how celiac disease may lead to osteoporosis and discusses good bone health.
- Celiac Disease Diagnosis
As this eMedTV segment explains, diagnosing celiac disease often involves blood tests and a biopsy. Diagnosing this disease can be difficult because its symptoms are similar to those of other illnesses, such as Crohn's disease.
