Do you know the symptoms of celiac disease?
May is Celiac Awareness Month. Celiac disease is an immune disorder in which the body can’t tolerate gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley, because it damages the inner lining of the small intestine and prevents it from absorbing nutrients. It is estimated that 1 in 133 Americans have this disorder. Learn the many different symptoms that can afflict children and adults. Talk with your primary care or pediatric provider at Starling Physicians to learn more about screening and treatment options.
