Celiac disease is a medical condition in which the immune system attacks tissues when eating foods containing a food protein known as gluten which is found in three types of grains: wheat, barley, and corn.
Celiac disease includes a group of symptoms, including diarrhea, abdominal pain, and bloating.

  • Reported cases of infection are higher in women than men.
  • The risk of celiac disease increases in those with autoimmune thyroid disease, type 1 diabetes, Down syndrome, and Turner syndrome.
