Supporting Patients with Celiac Disease
Celiac disease is one of the most common autoimmune disorders in the world. It affects as many as one in every 100 people. The number of celiac disease diagnoses is only expected to grow as doctors and the public learn more about it.
CeliacNow is designed for people with celiac disease who:
- May not have access to celiac clinicians and specialized nutrition care.
- May want to share the site with their own clinician.
- Want to read more about nutrition and the gluten free diet from an introductory to a more advanced level.
Visit CeliacNow's Resources page for updated books, cookbooks, useful websites and more.
