Celiac disease (Nontropical Sprue) is the inability to digest gluten - all wheat, rye, triticale, barley or oats and any food containing these grains. Gluten damages the small intestine, and nutrients cannot be absorbed. Celiac disease occurs in children and in adults, and is not outgrown. A gluten-free diet will successfully control this condition.
