What is coeliac disease?

Coeliac disease is a disorder of the small intestine caused by an intolerance to gluten, a protein found in many grains, such as wheat, barley, oats and rye. People with coeliac disease have an abnormal immune reaction to gluten, which results in damaged gut lining and prevents the absorption of nutrients.
