Celiac is a disease that is quite complex in its nature. It can have many different symptoms and has a potential to affect virtually any organ system. It is a disorder that affects immunity and is triggered by gluten alone. When suffering from celiac, intake of gluten leads to intestine damage that can cause issues with other parts of our body. This is because the health of our gut has far reaching implications. Due to number of symptoms, disease is not easy to discern from some common intestinal problems.
- Researchers in the UK have shown that celiac disease is associated with short-term memory loss and an inability to concentrate.
- Sufferers of celiac disease are at risk for bone density loss and dental problems.
- Some women with unexplained infertility may be suffering from undiagnosed celiac disease.
“These symptoms differ from person to person and can affect every system of the body.”
