Making Sense of Celiac Disease Symptoms

Many patients and health professionals do not realize just how many health problems can stem from Celiac Disease. The list below contains over 300 Signs, Symptoms, Associated Disorders and Complications directly or indirectly resulting from Celiac Disease.

How can one disease state bring on such an array of health issues?
The answer lies in nutrition and its effect on the body. One or two nutrient deficiencies can cause a host of health problems that are seemingly unrelated. Correct the deficiency(ies), and you can correct many of the problems.
