More about Celiac Disease – Dr. Monte Smith: Celiac Disease is a digestive disorder in which damage to the small intestine interferes with the absorption of food. Persons with Celiac Disease cannot tolerate gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye and barley. Persons with Celiac Disease that eat gluten-containing foods damage small structures in the small intestine called villi, resulting in an inability to absorb nutrients from food no matter what food the individual eats. The U.T. Health Science Center’s Dr. Monte Smith discusses diagnosing, managing and treating Celiac Disease in this installment of Health Connection.
