Americans Confused About Celiac Disease, Food Allergies - Natural Products Marketplace

I'm sure it doesn't help that many of us (I know I've been guilty of this) refer to our disease as a gluten "allergy" because explaining the whole auto-immune thing just makes people's eyes bug out -- plus, it takes extra time.

I explain it in detail to friends, but I stick with "allergy" for most restaurant servers unless it's a place I frequent. Those places I'm a regular at probably know more about Celiac Disease than most doctors. :P
