Celiac.com 09/28/2017 - Celiac Disease is a global disease and affects almost 0.7% of the world's population. In India, researchers estimate that celiac disease affects about six to eight million Indians. Rates in the north India community are 1 in 100.

In a bid to discuss and explore the best ways to address the challenges faced by patients with celiac disease and the way forward, the 17th International Celiac Disease Symposium (ICDS 2017) was held for the first time in Asia from the 8th to the 10th of September 2017.

ICDS offers a platform for researchers, gastroenterologists, clinical scientists, nutritionists, and other relevant industry leaders from across the globe to gather and address common challenges faced by patients living with celiac disease.

In addition to discussions of treatment and management of celiac disease, ICDS 2017 also addressed ways to increase awareness among health care professionals and the general public about the disease,

The conference also offered presentations on team-based management of patients with celiac disease, proper counseling and supervision of patients, training of dietitians in the management of celiac patients, industrial production of reliable and affordable gluten-free food, and food labeling for gluten contents.

The symposium was organized by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in association with the Indian Society of Gastroenterology (ISG), International Society for the Study of Celiac Disease (ISSCD), and the Asia-Pacific Association of Gastroenterology (APAGE).
