Celiac disease

Information on the internet

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Celiac disease damages the mucosal lining of the small intestines, resulting in the inability to absorb nutrients and causing diarrhea. It can also result in a chronic inflammatory condition of the skin called dermatitis herpetiformis and rheumatoid arthritis. This condition is recognized more often because of improved diagnostic tests. The symptoms of the disease are reversible with strict adherence to a gluten-free diet. This column will describe the disease, its causes, and its epidemiology. The column will also discuss Internet sites that will be helpful in answering the common questions and concerns of newly diagnosed patients often encountered by consumer heath librarians.
