According to the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse, celiac disease is a digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food. People who have celiac disease cannot tolerate gluten, a protein in wheat, rye, and barley. Gluten is found mainly in foods but may also be found in everyday products such as medicines, vitamins, and lip balms.
It is estimated that more than three million Americans are affected by celiac disease. Left untreated, celiac disease can cause a variety of uncomfortable side effects such as bloating, diarrhea, stomach pain and weight loss.
