Celiac disease is an inherited autoimmune disease of the small intestine. When a person who has celiac disease eats gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye or barley, his immune system overreacts and attacks the small intestine.
People that suffer from celiac disease need to go on a special, life-long gluten-free diet in order to manage the illness. If you’ve recently been diagnosed with celiac disease, it is likely that you are receiving confusing and sometimes conflicting information about what to do and what to eat.
This website will help you learn more about the condition and how to manage it. Come in and look around. You’ll find information on diagnosis, testing, symptoms and the gluten-free diet. You can download flyers on all these subjects and more, to read at home and share with your doctor.
The key to living with celiac disease is knowledge. We want to share ours with you to help you learn about, and learn to live with, celiac disease.
