What is celiac disease? Celiac disease is an inherited condition that impacts digestion by causing the intestinal villi to flatten and not allow nutrients to be absorbed into the bloodstream. The lack of nutrients creates a myriad of over 300 symptoms to occur, varying from person to person.
One percent of people have celiac disease, making it a COMMON condition.
It is possible to have celiac disease and have NO symptoms. A positive biopsy = active disease regardless of symptoms or lack thereof.
