What is celiac disease or gluten allergy?

Celiac disease or gluten allergy is a chronic intestinal disease that generally has gastro-intestinal symptoms. Celiac disease is also called glutenenteropathie or native thrush. It is an innate intolerance for gluten. If the diet is not adjusted this can lead to damage of the lining of the intestines. The intestinal disease is, according to the theory, caused by a reaction against one of the proteins that is in the gluten-containing complex. Such a reaction produces antibodies from the IgA class which the body reacts strongly to.
