What is Celiac Disease?
Celiac disease is a COMMON, genetically linked autoimmune disease. An environmental STRESS can activate celiac disease. In people with celiac disease, gluten exposure evokes an immune mediated response throughout the body generally with measurable damage to the intestinal lining. Some of the most common symptoms are joint pain, anemia, diarrhea, constipation, fatigue and irritability.
