Introduce the topic of your paper. State your health service question, and explain the biomedical issues.

Celiac disease (coeliac disease, celiac sprue) is caused by an autoimmune disorder in which the affected person experiences an attack on intestinal villi following the ingestion of gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. The intestinal function is greatly reduced, often leading to malabsorption, anemia, and in untreated cases, cases as serious as Type I diabetes or multiple sclerosis.
