Sample text

Celiac disease? No way,” you may have said to yourself or others. You may have then looked up information on the Internet and found that your symptoms didn’t match all of those listed on some Web sites; this may have provided additional justification to your feelings of denial. But you still weren’t feeling as well as you should or your lab tests showed you were deficient in certain nutrients, or your bone density was low (as seen with osteoporosis), or you had some other feature of celiac disease which, try as you might, wasn’t going to disappear.

As we discuss in Chapter 2, however, although gluten triggers the condition, that’s not quite the same as saying it causes the condition. By way of analogy, if ever you were working on your computer and you routinely pressed a key only to suddenly have your computer crash, one could appropriately say that pressing the key triggered the crash, but an underlying software glitch caused the problem in the first place. What, then, causes celiac disease? The quick answer is we don’t know. The more complicated answer is a combination of having a susceptibility to the condition by virtue of one’s genetic make-up in conjunction with some as yet unknown environmental factor.

Both terms refer to the same condition. Celiac is the spelling far more commonly used in North America and, hence, the spelling we use throughout this book. Incidentally, the term celiac (or coeliac) comes from the Greek word Koila, which refers to the abdomen. Doctors have known about celiac disease for a long time. Articles describing individuals suffering from diarrhea (most likely due to what we now call celiac disease) first appeared over two thousand years ago. It was, however, Dr. Samuel Gee who, in London, England in 1887, first described the condition in detail and even presciently observed that successful therapy was to be found in changing a patient’s diet.
