Meaning / Definition

In this section, include a brief description of the disorder or disease. You may include picture(s) or video(s) to illustrate your points.

 

Some people have a problem with foods that contain gluten. This is a type of disease called celiac disease. Gluten is a type of protein and it can be found in grains wheat, barley, rye and triticale. Triticale is a wheat-rye cross. When a person has celiac disease and he or she eats food with gluten in it, the gluten triggers an immune response that is not normal. This damages the inside of a person's small intestine and it can't do a good job in absorbing nutrients from the person's food.

A normal human body's immune system is designed to protect it form foreign invaders. when a person has celiac disease eats foods containing gluten, that person have celiac disease eats foods containing gluten, that persons immune system forms antibiotics to gluten in which then attack the intestinal lining this will cause inflammable in the intestines and would damage the villi, the hair like structures on the small intestine linings. normally nutrients form the food we eat are absorbed by the villi. if the villi is damage, no matter what he or she eats the person will not have the ability to absorb the nutrients properly and would end up being nourished.

Do use more paragraphs. The section "links to other diseases" needs more paragraphing. Do explain breifly what some of the diseases are.

Avoid using words like "can't". Use "cannot" instead.

Do explain more complicated terms like "gluten" and "lupus"
