Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if you eat gluten with celiac disease?

If someone with celiac disease consumes a food or drink with gluten, their immune system will react negatively and begin to damage the small intestine. Eventually this leads to malabsorption of nutrients, but in the short term, that person may experience an upset stomach, belching, diarrhea, or other symptoms.
