Celiac Symptom Differentiation: Malabsorption versus Malnutrition

Posted by nepeht on January 13, 2009

  I thought this was very interesting as a way of differentiating the various symptoms I might have due to Celiac Disease.  I found this on WebMD today.

  Celiac Symptoms: Mal–absorption versus Malnutrition

From WebMD about symptoms of Celiac Disease:

“Depending on the degree of malabsorption, the signs and symptoms of celiac disease vary among individuals, ranging from no symptoms, few or mild signs and symptoms, to many or severe signs and symptoms. There are two categories of signs and symptoms: 1) signs and symptoms due to malabsorption, and 2) signs and symptoms due to malnutrition including vitamin and mineral deficiencies.”

  For me, this is another way of helping me better understand and hopefully address my symptoms.
