Celiac disease is a hereditary autoimmune intestinal disorder that affects both children and adults. When an individual with this disorder consumes gluten (proteins found in the grains wheat, barley and rye), an immune reaction is triggered in the small intestine.
The phenomenon of gluten sensitivity in the absence of celiac disease is not new; it was first described in medical literature in the late 1970s. Since then, clinicians have continued to encounter patients who report adverse reactions to gluten, despite testing negative for celiac disease. This has led to further research and increased publication on the subject.
This section includes web links for North American celiac organizations; gluten-free labeling regulations in the U.S. and Canada; articles written by Shelley Case in Allergic Living Magazine and other publications; as well as and additional helpful resources about celiac disease, gluten sensitivity and the gluten-free diet.
