    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    The University Of Maryland Center For Celiac Research (CFCR) was established as an impartial, non-profit organization to improve the lifestyle of Celiacs through scientific research. As many of you know, we are presently conducting a nationwide six center serological study to determine the prevalence of Celiac Disease in the United States.

    Scott Adams’ call for "... a conference among the different Celiac organizations to reach an agreement on what is safe and what is not?" sound like a reasonable approach to at least beginning the discussions essential to resolving this very difficult problem. Ann Whelan, in her May-June issue of "Gluten-free Living" enclosed an insert entitled "Time to Act...Unite Now". Maybe this single issue is a good place to start.

    We at the CFCR would like to offer our impartial auspices in putting together such a "Celiac Food Forum". Inviting food scientists, dieticians, nutritionists, support group leaders and interested Celiacs from the United States, Canada and other countries to discuss in open forum these very important issues.

    Please let us know if you think we may be of service by responding to Bob Levy, CFCR Volunteer, via his e-mail address "bobolevy@erols.com" or by calling him at 410-486-0292.

    Dr. Alessio Fasano and Dr. Karoly Horvath, Co-Medical Directors - University Of Maryland Center For Celiac Research.

  • About Me

    Scott Adams was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. In 1995 he launched the site that later became Celiac.com to help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives.  He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of the (formerly paper) newsletter Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. Celiac.com does not sell any products, and is 100% advertiser supported.

    Celiac.com 11/04/2011 - For many folks, fall means changing leaves, crisp weather, football, and beer. Or just crisp weather and beer. Fortunately, for those with gluten sensitivities, the explosion of diagnoses for celiac disease and gluten-intolerance has given rise to an explosion of gluten-free products, including a number of gluten-free beers.
    "People are becoming more knowledgeable of the symptoms in which gluten can cause on one's health," said New Planet Beer Marketing Director Danielle Quatrochi, "so people are being diagnosed sooner and more often than before. There's also been a lot of press around the benefits of a gluten-free diet, opening...

    Celiac.com 04/13/2012 - There is a disease that affects one in every hundred Americans and causes physical and mental agony yet once it’s diagnosed, it can be easily treated with a change in diet and without the administration of drugs. You maybe haven’t even heard of it. You would think that the sufferers of this disease would be rather lucky to have such an easy treatment option available to them, right? As a matter of fact, it turns out that this disease—celiac, or coeliac, disease—may be easy to treat, but it’s very difficult for doctors to diagnose, and for the very reason that doctors haven’t heard of it either. It’s estimated that three out of every ...

    Celiac.com 11/25/2014 - As a celiac patient or relative of a celiac patient, many have come to understand the mental and physical symptoms of celiac disease directly or indirectly. Now the time has come for your infant to delve into the world of eating solid foods, most of which happen to contain gluten, especially the first baby cereals. If you’re like most mothers, it’s understandable that you would be nervous. In my gluten-free advocacy work and as a child of a celiac mother, I understand these concerns and am pleased to inform others of the ...
