Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

An autoantibody is an antibody produced by the immune system that is directed against one or more of the individual's own proteins/tissues.

 Antibodies are protective proteins produced by the immune system in response to the presence of  foreign substances, called an antigens.

Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition where the body attacks itself at the site of gluten absorption – the small intestine.Both gluten sensitivity and celiac disease share similar symptoms that are triggered by exposure to gluten, but the potential implications of each condition are different.
