What is the Difference Between Celiac Disease, Gluten Sensitivity and a Wheat Allergy?

Celiac Disease

Those with celiac disease have no cure and eating gluten can cause serious damage to the intestines. The diet can involve a strict regimen and can lead to longer term health issues if not properly addressed. Mineral and vitamin deficiency issues, nervous system disorders, gall bladder malfunction,  iron deficiency and anemia, lactose intolerance, and other effects are just a few. Not all signs are the typical and classical symptoms, so careful monitoring can be suggested for some. There are different types of celiac disease as listed by The Celiac Disease Foundation: non-classical, classical, and silent celiac disease. The differences between these can be elusive to even those who have faced gluten issues in the past.
