Celiac disease is still vastly under diagnosed. It is an autoimmune gastrointestinal disease in which gliadin (a grain protein found in gluten) causes damage to the small intestine lining. The abnormal immune response to this grain protein can lead to flattening of the villi (tiny finger-like projections) in the small intestine leading to serious nutrient deficiencies including vital vitamins and minerals. Our naturopathic physicians diagnosis and treat celiac disease and due to their thorough examinations and questioning, often catch missed diagnoses. As root-cause medical detectives, our naturopathic physicians are on your side to ensure your optimal health is achieved.
