What is Celiac Disease?
Celiac Disease is a disease of the small intestine triggered by the ingestion of wheat, rye, barley or oats. A type of protein in these grains causes an "autoimmune" response that damages the small intestinal lining in genetically susceptible individuals. Celiac disease is estimated to occur in 1 of 135 persons in the United States. It is twice as common in females and occurs primarily in Caucasians.
