September 13 is National Celiac Disease Awareness Day.
There is a good chance you know someone who is gluten-intolerant, but they do not know it. It’s estimated that 1 in around 100 people actually have diagnosable Celiac disease, and many more are gluten intolerant. Sadly, many people are misdiagnosed or they do not know they should seek medical assistance.
Please take a moment to read it and ask yourself if you or anyone you know might benefit from learning more. Here in the U.S.A., an excellent resource for assistance is the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America.
A partial list of the symptoms I had are here.
Spread the word, save a life.
