Celiac diseaseAss HLA-DQ2, HLA-DQ8, dermatitis herpetiformis, decrease bone density.
Celiac diseaseDistal duodenum and/or proximal jejunum
Disaccharidase deficiencyLactase deficiency. Normal appearing villi.
Lactose deficiencySince lactase is at tip of villi, self limited deficiency can happen after injury.
Pancreatic insufficiency causesCF, obstructing cancer, chronic pancreatitis.
