In Spain, the National Celiac Day is celebrated on May 27, a date that FACE, the Federation of Celiac Associations of Spain has marked on the calendar to give awareness and support to people with celiac disease to normalize their life.
According to FACE, Celiac Disease is an autoimmune-based multisystemic disease caused by gluten and related prolamins, in genetically susceptible individuals, and is characterized by the presence of a variable combination of: gluten-dependent clinical manifestations, CD-specific antibodies, haplotypes. HLA DQ2 or DQ8 and enteropathy.
A percentage of the total of 75% is undiagnosed, so despite the fact that now the percentage of celiacs in Spain is 1%, the percentage is destined to rise more, since until now the recognition of this disease has been exclusively , with its classic form of clinical presentation. However, today other atypical forms of its manifestation are contemplated.
The detection of this ailment is very important, since it can be derived from other very different and varied ones such as anemia, autism, constipation, diarrhea and even cancer. So far, the only cure for this disease is the 100% gluten-free diet, a protein found in the seeds of many cereals such as wheat, barley, rye, triticale, spelled, among others.
