In brief: Celiac

Strict avoidance of any gluten containing products with supplementation of vitamins and minerals for whatever is lost with the elimination of gluten from the diet.

In brief: Gluten-free diet

A gluten-free diet usually makes symptoms go away.
Celiac disease (gluten allergy) occurs in a person who may have a genetic tendency to react abnormally to gluten. Something causes his immune system to over-react to gluten. Later, when he eats foods containing gluten, his immune system reacts with the intestine that is digesting the gluten, thus causing intestinal problems and abnormal digestion.
