Definition

Permanent  intolerance to gluten , a complex of protein substances contained in some  cereals  such as  oats  (which actually contains avenins, corresponding to the gliadins of wheat but relatively safe for celiacs),  wheat , spelled, kamut, barley, rye, spelled and triticale.

There are no typical symptoms of celiac disease ; the gastrointestinal symptoms, in fact, are similar to those associated with other pathological conditions, such as  irritable bowel syndrome ,  gastric ulcers  or  Crohn’s disease , and sometimes these are even absent. If you experience the symptoms listed above, contact your doctor; a  preliminary blood test  , even if it has no diagnostic significance, is able to exclude the presence of celiac disease; if this is diagnosed with a small intestinal biopsy, the  gluten -free diet is the most effective therapy for symptom reduction.
