Celiac Awareness

May is Celiac Awareness Month

Every day we learn more about Celiac Disease and gluten intolerance.  Yet, still many do not understand what this means.  Let’s join together to spread Celiac awareness.

 

There are roughly 3 million people with Celiac Disease in the United States.  Yet, according to the Beyond Celiac Organization, 83% of people with Celiac disease are undiagnosed.  

 

Unfortunately, many have symptoms and don’t realize this as the cause of their ailments and discomforts.  And, it still takes roughly 6 to 10 years to be diagnosed correctly.

 

We still have a lot of Celiac Awareness

to spread!

 

The Beyond Celiac Organization posted the following list a couple of years ago.  It’s full of awesome ways to spread awareness and help our communities! Check it out and see how you can share gluten-free living with others.

 

 

May is Celiac Awareness Month

Beyond Celiac is raising awareness by sharing 60 ways to support the cause!

 

  1. Watch and share our new video to show what it’s like to have celiac disease.
  2. Wear a green shirt – it’s the unofficial official color for celiac disease.
  3. Bring gluten-free snacks to work, school, etc. and talk about why you eat gluten-free.
  4. Tell a restaurant worker you have celiac disease instead of only asking for the gluten-free menu.
  5. Buy a celiac disease awareness bracelet from Bravelets (Beyond Celiac gets $10 for every purchase!).
  6. Leave brochures about celiac disease in your doctor’s office.
  7. Put a green ribbon magnet on your car.
  8. Share the Celiac Disease Symptoms Checklist on social media.
  9. Talk to your family about getting tested for celiac disease.
  10. Ask a restaurant, school, hospital or other food service establishment to take GREAT Kitchens online gluten-free training.

Our family loves to bake and cook for others to show that gluten-free foods are quite delicious! 

 

Can you share a recipe or cook with a friend?

 

Help those around you

 

Whenever you donate to the local Food Bank or Food Drives, remember to bring along gluten-free items.  Often this is forgotten and creates problems for the gluten-free community when a disaster does strike. Thank you in advance!
