Celiac Disease is an autoimmune disease where the body’s small intestine becomes inflamed in response to gluten exposure. Gluten is the term for various proteins found in grains including barley, wheat, rye, spelt and kamut. Approximately 0.5-1% of the global population has celiac disease, with a large majority of those individuals unaware of their condition. Celiac disease is a separate condition from gluten insensitivity. An individual can experience gluten allergy symptoms (abdominal cramping, diarrhea, bloating) with gluten ingestion, without having inflammation within their small intestine that is classically reported in celiac disease. Symptoms of celiac disease, and gluten allergy overlap with symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.
