Raising Awareness! Focus on: Celiac Disease
with gluten are eaten. Glutens are a
form of protein found in some grains.
The damage to the intestine makes it
hard for the body to absorb nutrients,
especially fat, calcium, iron, and folate.
What Causes Celiac Disease?
Celiac disease -- also
known as celiac sprue
or gluten-sensitive
enteropathy -- is a
digestive and
autoimmune disorder
that results in damage
to the lining of the small
intestine when foods
Normally, the body's immune system is
designed to protect it from foreign
invaders. When people with celiac
disease eat foods containing gluten,
their immune system forms antibodies to
gluten which then attack the intestinal
lining. This causes inflammation in the
intestines and damages the villi, the
hair-like structures on the lining of the
small intestine. Nutrients from food are
normally absorbed by the villi. If the villi
are damaged, the person cannot
absorb nutrients properly and ends up
malnourished, no matter how much he

or she eats.
Symptoms of celiac disease vary among
sufferers and include:
 Digestive problems (abdominal bloating,
pain, gas, diarrhea, pale stools, and
weight loss)
A severe skin rash called dermatitis
Iron deficiency anemia (low blood count)
Musculoskeletal problems (muscle cramps,
joint and bone pain)
Growth problems and failure to thrive (in
Tingling sensation in the legs (caused by
nerve damage and low calcium)
Aphthous ulcers (sores in the mouth)
Missed menstrual periods
Information from:
S.C.A.N. has been blessed enough to find a
bigger facility.
As of June, we will be in a 3,000 square foot
facility located at 250 East Elm. This is the old
NAPA building where All About Beauty is
currently located.
This facility will allow us to have more a gym
atmosphere which was Terry’s original vision.
There will be greater opportunities at this
