What is Celiac disease?

It is a digestive disorder caused by an abnormal immune reaction to gluten. Celiac disease is also known as sprue, nontropical sprue, gluten-sensitive enteropathy. In a conversation with ANI, Harnaaz spoke about being allergic to gluten, and how her body undergoes changes with a change in the places she travels to. 

"Nobody knows about my celiac disease where I cannot eat wheat and other edible items. Also if there is a change in place then the body tends to show a certain difference. If one goes to Punjab or any other place then he tends to gain weight or see changes. The same happened to me. I went to New York which was completely new for me." she shared.
