Concluding Thoughts about Celiac Disease

Concluding Thoughts

As stated, anemia can be a result of celiac disease. Celiac disease is the damaging of the small intestine when gluten is ingested. This damage to the small intestine makes it hard for the body to absorb iron, so it’s wise to keep an eye on iron levels. When patients experience pica or odd cravings like ice, dirt, or glue, patients may need to be tested for celiac disease.
