There is Celiac Disease and then there is Gluten IntoleranceThe problem protein is the same but the reaction (and health consequences) are different. Celiac Disease is an immune response like an allergy. An intolerance, as with fructose or lactose, the response is limited to the gut because the sugar or protein is not absorbed. So, where an intolerance may result in gas, bloating, and other GI problems, Celiac disease is more systemic. People with CD may or maynot have all of these symptoms as well as fatigue, depression, skin rash. Several people in our support group were diagnosed with fibremyalgia long before CD was diagnosed. The average number of years someone lives with CD before being diagnosed is 11 years. We hope to save people the suffering and expense by getting the word out. 1 in 130 people have CD and it is genetic. Thanks for the response.
