Celiac Awareness Month 2015

This is the time of year when many Celiac Foundations and other related organizations make a huge effort to raise awareness about celiac disease throughout the country.

What is Celiac Disease

Celiac Disease can affect individuals in many different ways mostly due to the large amount of possible symptoms. It's a genetic autoimmune disease which damages the small intestine, which is part of the gut that digests and absorbs our nutrients. It's very difficult to absorb nutrients when the small intestine is damaged.

There are individuals with no noticeable symptoms, some with slight symptoms ranging from digestion trouble, stomach pain, bloating, gas and weight problems. And of course there's the serious symptoms for those with celiac disease, such as severe abdominal pain, diarrhea, sore muscle aches, malnutrition issues and many other uncomfortable issues. Triggering of these symptoms  comes from gluten found in a protein grain such as barley, wheat and rye and consuming this can upset the entire body.
