CX0087: Gluten-Free: An Introduction to Celiac Disease

Course Description:

Celiac disease is a disorder that causes the body’s immune system to respond to the protein in certain grains. It is a multisystem disease which is one of the most underdiagnosed hereditary autoimmune disorders. In this autoimmune disorder, the body negatively reacts to certain protein chains called glutens. The body attacks itself when gluten enters the intestines. The negative reaction causes the villi of the small intestine to become damaged and eventually destroyed.

After reading Gluten-Free: An Introduction to Celiac Disease the participant will be able to:

  1. Define Celiac Disease.
  2. List three grains not included on a gluten free diet.
  3. Describe three symptoms presented by a typical patient diagnosed with Celiac Disease.
  4. Outline the two main steps in the course of diagnosis for Celiac Disease.
