Celiac Disease 101 - MsModify- (*I am not a medical professional, so please consult your doctor with symptoms, concerns, etc.) I get asked that question a lot. People with celiac disease are not allergic to gluten.
Celiac disease is not an allergy and it is also not a fad. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease (examples of other autoimmune diseases are: type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis).
