Coeliac disease is an allergic condition of the small intestine caused by the the protein gluten and more specifically gliadin. These proteins cause an intense localised inflammatory and allergic reaction at the surface of the small intestine which strips off the outer layer and all the finger-like villi. This leads to poor absorption of nutrients, fat and fat soluble vitamins leading to diarrhoea, bloating, weight loss, osteoporosis and anaemia. A gluten-free diet completely heals the inflammation.
