before anyone asks:
A lifelong digestive disorder, found in individuals who are genetically susceptible, that results in damage to the small intestine by interfering with the absorption of nutrients. Celiac Disease (CD) is unique in that a specific food component, gluten, has been identified as the culprit. Gluten is the common name for the offending proteins in specific cereal grains that are harmful to persons with CD. These proteins are found in all forms of wheat (including durum, semolina, spelt, kamut, einkorn, and faro), and related grains, rye, barley, and tritcale. Damage to the mucosal surface of the small intestine is caused by an immunologically toxic reaction to the ingestion of gluten.

Celiac Disease is a malnutrition/autoimmune disorder. Basically those effected don't have tolerence for Gluton. Gluton is found in wheat, rye, carbs, etc. All Celiacs must maintain a strict gluton-free diet. Basically, it blows. but you gotta learn to live w. it

My doctor thought I had celiacs, so i was on a gluten free diet for 6 months. It was bad, but not unbearable.

On the plus side, however, you not feeling sick 24/7 is a good thing. Right?
