Celiac Awareness Month

Although I don’t blog a lot about celiac disease, it is the reason I am on a gluten-free diet.  That is because a gluten-free diet is the only treatment for celiac disease.  Being that May is celiac awareness month, I thought I would post some links to celiac resources.

Celiac Resources

My Celiac Disease Page include links to previous posts I have written related to celiac disease.  Among other posts on celiac disease it includes:

There are many resources online.  Here are a few:

May is a great month to make celiac donations.  The Center for Celiac Research has the fundraiser, Making Tracks for Celiacs, an annual walk/run event that takes place in a number of cities.

There are also many good books on celiac disease (an Amazon affiliate link).  Try your local library if you don’t want to purchase a book.

Local Support Groups

There is a lot of online support for people with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.  However, it’s also great being able to meet people in person and talk face to face.  Local support groups give you that opportunity.  Many support groups have guest speakers and can be a great place to educate yourself on celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.   Don’t let “celiac” in the support group’s name keep you from attending if you are gluten sensitive but don’t have celiac.  Most support groups have people with both.

To find a support group, try a search that includes your city or state.  Here are a couple places to check also.

Gluten-Free Diet Resources

Most (if not all) of the sites listed above have information on celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.  Here are a couple more:

My Gluten-Free Diet Information Page

The Gluten Free Survival Guide –An eBook written and sold by Gluten-Free Cooking School.  It is a very practical and thorough eBook which I recommend to beginners.

You will also find gluten-free diet resources and cookbooks on Amazon (affiliate link), but don’t forget to try your library for those too.
