Were you looking for information on Celiac Disease? Celiac desease is a common misspelling of celiac disease.
Celiac disease is an inherited disorder that damages the small intestine and interferes with nutrient absorption. People with this condition have an intolerance for gluten, which is found in wheat, rye, and barley. Although gluten is found mainly in foods, it is also in products we use every day, such as stamp and envelope adhesive, medicines, and vitamins.
Symptoms of the disease may include diarrhea, abdominal pain (or stomach pain), and irritability. The disorder is typically treated by eliminating all gluten from the diet, and people with the disease must follow this gluten-free diet for the rest of their lives.
Researchers are still trying to figure out the exact cause or causes of this condition. At this point, they believe that the disease is a type of autoimmune disease and that certain genes and environmental factors play a role in a person developing the disease.
