WHAT IS CELIAC DISEASE?

Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition caused by an immune reaction to ingested gluten in genetically predisposed individuals. It affects 1 to 2% of the world population, and if not adequately treated, it can lead to long term health complications and reduced quality of life.

WHAT IS NON-CELIAC GLUTEN SENSITIVITY?

Some people can experience allergic reactions to wheat or symptoms without having celiac disease. It is essential to diagnose these conditions properly, as patient care and follow-up will be different from in someone with celiac disease.
