Celiac Disease Treatment in Greater Salt Lake City
Celiac disease is a chronic autoimmune disorder characterized by an abnormal immune response to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. When individuals with celiac disease consume gluten, it triggers an immune reaction that damages the lining of the small intestine, leading to inflammation and nutrient malabsorption. Untreated celiac disease can have a significant impact on daily life, leading to nutritional deficiencies, impaired growth and development (especially in children), infertility, and an increased risk of other autoimmune disorders and certain types of cancer, such as lymphoma.
