The article offers information about the celiac disease or gluten sensitivity enteropathy (GSE). Patients with celiac disease are intolerant to the gliadin fraction of gluten and to equivalent proteins found in wheat, rye, and barley. Study reveals that the only treatment for celiac disease is the adherence to a gluten-free diet. Thus, gluten sensitivity causes malabsorption, which is the inability to absorb properly nutrients from food.
