Experts estimate that about 3 million Americans have celiac disease. The condition, caused by an abnormal immune response to gluten, can damage the lining of the small intestine. This can result in many problems, including gastrointestinal symptoms, skin conditions, and malnutrition. Gluten is found in wheat, barley, and rye, as well as other whole grain foods related to wheat, such as bulgur, farro, kamut, spelt, and triticale.
Although there is ongoing research exploring pharmaceutical treatments for the disease, the current standard of care requires adoption of a gluten-free diet. There are other forms of wheat sensitivity, and affected individuals also benefit from the adoption of a gluten-free diet.
