Celiac Awareness Month…What are the Essentials?

0 Comments 04 May 2015

October is Celiac Awareness Month. I became aware of celiac disease in  1999,when my doctor gave me my test results, referred me to a physician who who “knew more than he did” about that malady, and gave me a pamphlet on the subject. I left the office confused and afraid to eat dinner.

In  the beginning, my major Celiac Awareness issue was that no one had the slightest idea what I was talking about. Today, things are much more complicated. For example, people need to know that the gluten free diet

~~~> was designed to deal with symptoms of Celiac Disease. It has nothing to do with weight loss efforts or  anything else.

~~~> was designed to be a lifelong commitment.

~~~> is an elimination diet. We are not trying to cut down on gluten:  our goal is eliminate it from our diet.

~~~> must not be initiated until after a person has been tested for Celiac Disease. Otherwise, test results are useless.

~~~> has generated a market for gluten free food. Manufacturers and restaurateurs are thriving. We are eating better as a result of their efforts.

What else needs to added? What can I (and other internet journalists) do to improve our nation’s Celiac Awareness?
