The article focuses on stomach problems that still persist among people with celiac disease despite having been on the gluten-free diet. The functional changes to digestion associated with celiac disease include inflammation and destruction of portions of the gut, malabsorption and weakened digestion. Sometimes stomach problems still exist among celiac disease patients because somewhere in their diet they are still consuming gluten. Other conditions that contribute to persisting digestive problems include low stomach acid and bacterial overgrowth.
