      My wife was just diagnosed with celiac disease about a week ago. There's SO much info online, but it's too vast to assimilate. Is there anywhere someone knows of to get a "crash course" on celiac disease? My wife's doctor has not been really helpful - his whole explanation of the issue is that she'll have to stay away from wheat products and watch what she eats.

      Are there different levels of celiac disease? Are the treatments the same anyway?

      I see that many people with celiac disease get sick from gluten - so it's easy to see that in that case you'd need to be very careful. My wife (thankfully) gets no visible adverse reactions, but it causes her body to be unable to absorb vitamins properly. I wonder if that means she can have glutens occasionally?


      I'm a concerned and clueless husband!
