NIH Rare Diseases:45 Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that damages the small intestine and inhibits absorption of nutrients. people with celiac disease cannot tolerate gluten, a protein in wheat, rye, barley, and in some products such as medicines, vitamins, and lip balms. when affected people eat food with gluten, or use a product with gluten, the immune system reacts by damaging tiny parts of the lining of the small intestine called villi. because villi normally allow the blood to absorb nutrients from food, affected individuals become malnourished. classic signs and symptoms are caused by inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract and may include diarrhea, weight loss, abdominal pain, swelling, and food intolerance. however, many people have other symptoms involving many body systems, and some people have no symptoms. while celiac disease tends to run in families, it does not follow a specific inheritance pattern. the risk to develop celiac disease is raised by having certain forms of the hla-dqa1 and hla-dqb1 genes. treatment is a lifelong, gluten-free diet. last updated: 2/6/2014
MalaCards based summary: Celiac Disease, also known as celiac sprue, is related to autoimmune thyroiditis and autoimmune disease of gastrointestinal tract, and has symptoms including vitamin b12 deficiency, autosomal recessive inheritance and depression. An important gene associated with Celiac Disease is HLA-DQB1 (Major Histocompatibility Complex, Class II, DQ Beta 1), and among its related pathways are Thyroxine (Thyroid Hormone) Production and CTLA4 Signaling. The drug medium chain triglycerides has been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include small intestine to gliadin, small intestine and testes, and related mouse phenotypes are hematopoietic system and immune system.
Disease Ontology:10 An autoimmune disease of gastrointestinal tract that is caused by a reaction located in small intestine to gliadin, a prolamin (gluten protein) found in wheat, and similar proteins found in the crops of the tribe triticeae. the disease is associated with hla-dq gene. it has symptom abdominal pain, has symptom constipation, has symptom diarrhea, has symptom nausea and vomiting, and has symptom loss of appetite.
MedlinePlus:35 Celiac disease is an immune disease in which people can't eat gluten because it will damage their small intestine. if you have celiac disease and eat foods with gluten, your immune system responds by damaging the small intestine. gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. it is found mainly in foods but may also be in other products like medicines, vitamins and supplements, lip balm, and even the glue on stamps and envelopes. celiac disease affects each person differently. symptoms may occur in the digestive system, or in other parts of the body. one person might have diarrhea and abdominal pain, while another person may be irritable or depressed. irritability is one of the most common symptoms in children. some people have no symptoms. celiac disease is genetic. blood tests can help your doctor diagnose the disease. your doctor may also need to examine a small piece of tissue from your small intestine. treatment is a diet free of gluten. nih: national institute of diabetes and digestive and kidney diseases
Genetics Home Reference:23 Celiac disease is a condition in which the immune system is abnormally sensitive to gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder; autoimmune disorders occur when the immune system malfunctions and attacks the body's own tissues and organs. Without a strict, lifelong gluten-free diet, inflammation resulting from immune system overactivity may cause a wide variety of signs and symptoms involving many parts of the body.
