Celiac disease - symptoms and how to test
Celiac disease is a chronic digestive and immunological illness that causes damage to the small intestine. Consuming gluten-containing foods is the primary cause of the condition. The infection can lead to chronic digestive issues that prevent the body from absorbing the required nutrients. Worldwide, both children and adults have celiac disease. White Americans have a higher incidence of celiac disease than any other race or ethnicity in the United States. Celiac disease is more common in females than in males. Before starting a gluten-free diet, it is important to get tested for celiac disease. If the tests show celiac disease, your doctor will likely request an endoscopy.
