Celiac disease is a genetic disease and the disease can occur at any stage of life. The disease is manifested by both genetic predisposition and consuming gluten-containing foods.
Celiac disease is a digestive system disease that causes deterioration of the structures that allow the digestion of food in the intestines and thus prevents nutrient absorption.
Consumption of certain grains such as barley, wheat and rye by genetically sensitive people causes a reaction in the body, and the protein called gluten in these grains is considered a completely toxic substance by the immune system.
The first signs of celiac disease are usually changes in the digestive system. Anorexia, chronic diarrhea or chronic constipation, recurrent abdominal pain and vomiting, short stature of unknown origin, marked delay in puberty, unresponsive to treatment and unexplained iron deficiency anemia and osteoporosis are the main symptoms pointing to celiac disease.
