Understanding Celiac Disease
Celiac disease is a digestive disorder activated by eating gluten, a protein that is found in wheat, rye and barley. People with celiac must follow a gluten-free diet for the sake of their digestive health.
Diagnosing and Treating Celiac Disease
To receive a diagnosis of celiac disease, a patient must visit a doctor of gastroenterology. This digestive health specialist will check for gluten intolerance by performing an endoscopy. If celiac is present, treatment is a strict gluten free diet.
