I Have Celiac Disease. I’m Not Sure It Is Classified As An “allergy” Or Not.

What they said is absolutely correct! However... try explaining that to a "muggle" or someone who doesn't have the disease like we do and they are as confused as you were. Its easier to just say "I can't have wheat, barley or rye or thing that came into contact with them". People understand the word allergy they don't get autoimmune disorder. I typically just say allergic for simplicity.
