Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Celiac Disease Celiac disease is a genetically predisposed disorder that affects the digestive system. When gluten is digested, the small intestine (specifically villi) gets damaged. The digestive system breaks down foods so that the body can absorb nutrients that are used for cellular processes. Enzymes break down different macromolecules in the food into nutrients. The mouth mechanically and chemically break down food using the teeth and saliva.The pharynx forces the food down the esophagus into the stomach. In the stomach, different enzymes break down different macromolecules in the food into nutrients.The liver, gallbladder, and pancreas secrete more enzymes and chemicalsthat further break down the contents in the stomach. The contents travel through the small intestine, where all the nutrients are absorbed by villi.The remaining stuff goes through the large intestine, which absorbs all the water in the leftover contents and compacts the indigestible materials to be released out of the body through the anus.
