Celiac Disease

Understanding Celiac Disease

People with celiac disease cannot eat foods containing gluten. In people with celiac disease, the body's immune system responds to gluten by damaging the lining of the small intestine.

The only treatment for celiac disease is to eat a gluten-free diet. See tips on reading food labels, grocery shopping, eating away from home, avoiding cross-contamination and other resources for a gluten-free lifestyle.
