What is Coeliac disease?

“Coeliac disease is a common digestive condition where a person has an adverse reaction to gluten...Coeliac disease is what is known as an autoimmune condition. This is where the immune system- the body's defence against infection- mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. Coeliac disease isn't an allergy or an intolerance to gluten.”
