What activates or triggers CD is not known, but it is thought to be an infection, environmental condition, or emotional turmoil. Once CD is active, it can stimulate T cells that can actively cause several types of cancer, predominately T-cell lymphoma. When a gluten-free diet is not followed, the inflammation in the small intestine stimulates the T cells in the lymph system to multiply. This is a rare type of large-cell cancer that has a very high mortality rate. Researchers note that increasing CD screening will prevent this condition more than anything else.

J. Freeman in the World Journal of Gastroenterology provided the following description: The mesenteric lymph node cavitation syndrome consists of central necrosis of mesenteric lymph nodes and may occur with either celiac disease or a sprue-like intestinal disease that fails to respond to a gluten-free diet. Splenic hypofunction (the spleen not functioning the way it should) may also be present. The cause is not known but its development during the clinical course of celiac disease is usually indicative of a poor prognosis for the intestinal disorder, a potential for significant complications including sepsis (a systemic blood infection) and malignancy, particularly T-cell lymphoma, and significant mortality.

An enzyme in the lining of the small intestine digests sucrose, also known as table sugar, into glucose and fructose, which are absorbed through the intestine into the blood. Milk contains another type of sugar, called lactose, which is changed into absorbable molecules by another enzyme in the intestinal lining. Fiber is undigested and moves through the digestive tract without being broken down by enzymes. Many foods contain both soluble and insoluble fiber. Soluble fiber dissolves easily in water and takes on a soft, gel-like texture in the intestines.
