Were you looking for information on Celiac Disease? Ciliac is a common misspelling of celiac.
Celiac disease is an inherited condition that damages the small intestine and interferes with nutrient absorption. People with this disease cannot tolerate a protein called gluten, which is found in wheat, rye, and barley.
Several symptoms affecting the digestive system or other parts of the body are associated with celiac disease, such as diarrhea, abdominal pain, irritability, and depression. People with the disorder must follow a gluten-free diet for the rest of their lives.
There is an interesting link between this condition and osteoporosis. Low bone density is common in both children and adults with untreated and newly diagnosed celiac disease.
