Celiac Disease is a genetic autoimmune disorder where the body has an intolerance to the protein called gluten which is found in wheat, rye, and barley. According to the Celiac Sprue Association, “1 in 133 Americans have celiac disease”. Left untreated, people with Celiac Disease can develop further complications such as vitamin deficiencies, other autoimmune diseases, osteoporosis, thyroid disease, and cancer. Currently the only treatment for Celiac Disease is a lifetime gluten-free diet.
