Celiac Disease

Celiac disease, sometimes called celiac sprue or gluten-sensitive enteropathy, is an immune reaction to eating gluten. If you have celiac disease, eating gluten triggers an immune response in your gut. Over time, this reaction damages your gut's lining and prevents it from absorbing some nutrients, causing malabsorption.

Celiac disease can't be prevented. If you already have celiac disease, you can prevent symptoms by eating a gluten-free diet.
