Question: What triggers celiac disease later in life?

Celiac disease can develop at any age after people start eating foods or medications that contain gluten. The later the age of celiac disease diagnosis, the greater the chance of developing another autoimmune disorder.

What triggers celiac disease?

Celiac disease is triggered by consuming gluten. Gluten is a complex protein substance found in wheat and other grains. Most breads, cereals, pastas, and other carb-based foods have gluten in them. People with celiac disease are unable to digest the gluten properly.

Can you develop celiac disease in your 60s?

Celiac sprue is a chronic disease, which usually occurs in children and young adults. However, it can develop in any age group, and the prevalence is increasing even in the elderly population. The atypical patterns of clinical presentation in this age group sometimes can cause a delay in diagnosis.

Can celiac ever go away?

Celiac disease itself never goes away because it is an autoimmune disorder that is in your genetic makeup.

What color is your stool if you have liver problems?

The liver releases bile salts into the stool, giving it a normal brown color. You may have clay-colored stools if you have a liver infection that reduces bile production, or if the flow of bile out of the liver is blocked. Yellow skin (jaundice) often occurs with clay-colored stools.
