Celiac disease is a condition that creates inflammation in the small intestine, and damage in the lining. This prevents important components of food from being absorbed. The damage to the lining of the intestine comes from a reaction to eating gluten, which is found in wheat
The symptoms of celiac disease can be different from person to person. This can make diagnosis difficult. For example, one person may have constipation another may have diarrhea.
Children with celiac disease may have:
Defects in the tooth enamel and changes in tooth color
Diarrhea, constipation, fatty or foul-smelling stools, nausea, or vomiting
Irritable and fussy behavior
Poor weight gain
Slowed growth and shorter than normal height for their age

Celiac disease cannot be cured. Your symptoms will go away and the villi in the lining of the intestines will heal if you follow a lifelong gluten-free diet. Do not eat foods and beverages or take medicines that contain wheat, barley, rye, and possibly oats.

The genome of bread wheat, which has an unusual form and size, has been decoded by an international team of scientists, revealing surprises on the grass-turned-crop's evolution.
The cultivation of wheat has long been viewed as an important factor in the rise of human civilization.
"It's always astonishing [that] the number of genes does not directly translate into the complexity of the organism," said Klaus Mayer.
There are roughly an unprecedented 100,000 genes in bread wheat genome, compared to only 20,000 genes in the human genome

Tissue Transglutaminase Antibodies (tTG-IgA)- The tTG-IgA test will be positive in about 98% of patients with celiac disease who are on a gluten- containing diet.
