Recommended Posts

[size="4"]I HOPE THAT I DO NOT GET INTO TROUBLE FOR POSTING THIS BUT I THOUGHT THAT EVERYBODY SHOULD SEE THIS.. LYNN

Please see below for info about a new bill to support people with celiac disease, and research on celiac disease.

Here's some of the text of the bill:

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring),

That Congress--

(1) supports the goals and ideals of National Celiac Awareness Month;

(2) should work with health care providers and celiac disease

advocacy and education organizations to encourage screening and

early detection of celiac disease; and

(3) should increase Federal funding for celiac disease research.

There's also info on supporting services of a Registered Dietitian

for people with celiac disease.

to send a letter, contact your representative through this link.

Celiacs Need Dietitian Services

Take Action!

Ask Congress to Pass HConRes 70

The NIH Consensus Development Conference on Celiac Disease

identified consultation with a skilled dietitian as one of six key

elements in the management of individuals with celiac disease.

The gluten-free diet represents a huge lifestyle change for people

diagnosed with celiac disease. Only dietitians are uniquely

qualified to provide the medical nutrition therapy needed by celiac

patients.

More awareness is needed about celiac disease, and vital role

dietitians play in their medical care.

TAKE ACTION
