National Celiac Disease Awareness Day - 2021-09-13
What is National Celiac Disease Awareness Day?
September 13th is National Celiac Disease Awareness Day and we should remember to show our support for those with the auto-immune disease that affects 3 million people. Celiac disease is a serious autoimmune disorder that causes the destruction of the villi in your small intestine. It can't be cured, but a strict gluten-free diet can prevent further damage and boost your overall nutritional intake. Gluten is found in many foods that you might not expect, including wheat, barley, rye, and even some oat products. Today, we honor those who suffer from celiac disease and promote the importance of diagnosis. Alternative meal preparation and diet suggestions help support those who have been diagnosed with celiac disease. These resources also help families provide nutritional lifestyles to those living with celiac disease.
