Coeliac Disease

Coeliac Disease

Coeliac disease is an autoimmune disorder where consuming gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye, triggers an immune response damaging the small intestine lining. This damage hinders nutrient absorption, leading to malnutrition and various symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, weight loss, and fatigue. Coeliac disease can develop at any age and may have genetic predispositions. Diagnosis involves blood tests to detect specific antibodies and confirmation via intestinal biopsy. Treatment revolves around strict adherence to a gluten-free diet, eliminating gluten-containing foods. Failure to manage the condition may result in complications like osteoporosis, infertility, and increased risk of certain cancers.
