Celiac DiseaseBy: Andrew Beraea, Cynthia Garcia, Samantha Rodriguez,Nathanial Ledesma
Celiac Disease is a serious genetic autoimmune disorder where the ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine.
Celiac Disease can develop at any age after people start eating foods or medicines that contain gluten.
Celica was in the second century but wasn't identified unit the 20th century. Discovered by a greek physician named Aretaeus of Cappadocia.
When people with Celiac Disease eat foods or use products containing gluten, their immune system responds by destroying or damaging villi, the tiny, fingerlike growths that line the small intestine. Villi allows the nutrients from food to be absorbed through the walls of the small intestine into the bloodstream.
we chose this topic because it seemed interesting to learn about how people get in sick by eating gluten.
there is no medication or treatment that is made for celiac disease , if you contract it you may have to go on a gluten free diet.
