From here the necessity of considering a dimension that allows to gather the uneasiness and the social damages connected to the illness: especially because it doesn’t need a care in the traditional sense of the term (differently from other autoimmune illnesses like the diabetes, the autoimmune thyroiditis or the psoriasis, in the case of the celiac disease is "enough" to follow a free-gluten diet). Celiac disease deprives the celiac of relational occasions, which could have played an important role in the accumulation of social capital.
