Celiac disease deals with how the immune system responds to gluten in blood. In short, they have a negative influence on the gluten, causing them to activate T-cells, which then go on to mistakenly attack the intestinal wall. After this occurs, the nutrient-absorbing villi are damaged, leading to improperly absorbed nutrients and a number of other serious medical issues. In a type 1 diabetes patient who has celiac disease, the first thing that could happen would be a severe spike in hypoglycemic conditions. This alone could have serious consequences, but if this disease is left untreated, in a type 1 diabetes patient it almost certainly will lead to brittle diabetes. However, there is good news for those concerned about celiac disease. Simply eliminating gluten from one's diet will all but eliminate the symptoms of celiac disease.
