No Wheat Allergy - Celiac Possible?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Yes.  Celiac is an autoimmune disease and separate from an allergy.  It is possible to have both but an allergy and autoimmune diseases are completely different.  An allergen triggers the non-specific "Innate" system and  an autoimmune disease triggers the "adaptive" system which will go after more specific targets.  The innate system will trigger the adapt system when it can no longer fight the intruders by itself. 

 

I hope that was clear enough to understand, I'm still working on my first cup of coffee.  I need two to usually talk coherently :D
