Gluten Intolerances

Celiac disease, specific sensitivities of the organism associated and not to particular antimmune pathologies are the three types of gluten intolerances.

Celiac disease is an auto-immune reaction that leads to an atrophy of the intestinal villi and a subsequent malasorption syndrome.

Non-celiac gluten sensitivity is a lighter form of intolerance, manifested as fatigue and abdominal pain, but does not damage the intestinal mucosa

Finally, recent studies suggest that particular expressions of gluten sensitivity are immune-mediated diseases that may be linked to autoimmune complications.
