Coeliac Disease
 
Standard Definition

Coeliac disease (also known as gluten-induced enteropathy) is an intestinal disorder that results from intolerance to gluten, a protein found in wheat, oats, barley, and rye.

 
 
Underlying Disruption in Function

As a result of the reaction to gluten, the damaged intestinal walls are less able to absorb vital nutrients. This malabsorption may be severe enough to cause illnesses such as anaemia or osteoporosis. The most common nutritional deficiencies include essential fatty acids, iron, vitamin D, vitamin K, calcium, magnesium, folic acid, zinc, vitamin B6 and A. Coeliac disease can contribute to significant diseases such as thyroid disorders, infertility, miscarriage, depression and osteoporosis, indicating that diagnosis and proper treatment is essential.
