May is Celiac Awareness Month. What’s it like to Live with Celiac Disease?

May is celiac awareness month. As a gluten-free energy bar company, pretty much every month is celiac awareness month here, but we want to help spread the word.  

Celiac disease is an immune reaction to consuming gluten, a protein found in wheat. Check out our blog post specifically on gluten to learn more about it. Consuming gluten triggers a response in people with this disease. It damages their small intestine’s lining over time and prevents the body from absorbing nutrients. Celiac disease can manifest itself in many ways. The intestinal damage that occurs when eating gluten can cause an individual with this disease to experience anything from fatigue and irritability to weight loss and infertility as well as a variety of other uncomfortable and painful side effects.
