Celiac disease actually flattens out the intestines. It presents as severe stomach pain or indigestion. People who really do have celiac disease cannot handle any amount of wheat or flower, and that includes cooking on surfaces that have touched it, which usually means cooking all your own food and not eating out.

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that affects the small intestine. People with this disease experience diarrhea and in children, a failure to thrive. People with celiac disease need to avoid glutens as found in wheat products. By eliminating this grain and anything made from it, the symptoms can disappear.

Can you tell us a little more about what you want to know?  This is not a clear question.

Celiac disease is when your body can't absorb gluten (which is in wheat and some other grains).  Because of that, people with this disease have to eat a special diet.  This diet must not include any foods that contain things like wheat, barley, rye, and some other grains.
