About Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance

One in 133 Americans has celiac disease, an autoimmune disease that damages the small intestine and causes nutrition deficiencies. People with celiac disease cannot tolerate gluten, and the only treatment for those who are diagnosed with celiac disease is to maintain a strict gluten-free diet. Gluten Intolerance, a separate disorder, also requires a gluten-free diet, but does not cause the same damage or deficiencies as celiac disease.
