You're welcome, Bonniei.

I'm one of those who likes to get info not only from those who have the disease but also the info from the "horse's mouth", the medical profession, as well.

I figured sure you would get an answer here. Of course, the holiday weekend isn't the best time to find many of us here.

Do be sure to check back in when the holiday is over.

In a nutshell- coeliac disease is an intolerance to gluten in foods. One of the symptom is inflammation of the small intestine- most commonly in the duodenum or first bit of the bowel after the stomach. Inflammation is cured with a gluten-free diet.

Crohn's disease is an inflammatory bowel disease and can cause inflammation and ulceration in any part of the digestive system from the mouth to the anus. It's cause is unknown and it is incurable.

You might want to start out by doing a google search on Celiac Disease.

Then try a PubMed search on Celiac Disease.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/PubMed/

Then do the same for Crohns Disease.
