Celiac Awareness Day

Today is September 13th, 2011. Celiac awareness day!  Why is it so important to have such a day? Because without awareness we have no voice, we will never have a cure, we will constantly suffer from mislabeled foods, accidental gluten intake, and cross contamination.

I have compiled some great links for everyone to read over, that are chock full of statistics. The saddest one is that 1 in every 22 people have this disease if someone in their family has it, and 1 in 133 people without a family history have Celiac, and yet no one knows about it? How is this possible?

Here are the links I have found:

It's so frustrating how they don't order all or the right tests and then if something comes back not right--just ignore it. With my daughter I knew something was off for some time but her blood tests -of course it was only a ttg iga and immunoglobulin a that were run-came back negative. But in ...

I eat oatmeal and granola made with certified gluten free oats. I have to be careful of those that are labeled just gluten free or organic oats on the label as I have had adverse reactions. I also eat Rice and Corn Chex. If I am traveling, I can usually find them in grocery stores even in small ...

Hey fellow celiacs! Just wondering what cereals everyone eats. I know cereal is not the most nutritious choice but sometimes making eggs gets tiring so just a nice list of gluten free options would be great?
