May is Celiac Disease Awareness Month. Spread the Word!

celiac disease awarenessCeliac disease awareness is desperately needed – now more than ever. 

While the gluten-free diet has exploded in popularity, celiac disease remains massively under-diagnosed.

Why? Two Reasons: 

1. The public has shifted its focus to the gluten-free diet and away from celiac disease due to the media. The media likes diets. Diets sell. Oddly named diseases that are difficult to describe in catchy sound bites don’t sell.

2. Doctors do not have the information they need to recognize, diagnose and treat this common disorder. The information exists but there is no authority that actively ensures they receive and implement it. As a result, they don’t know what they don’t know. When patients who hear about the “wonders of the gluten-free diet” request testing, doctors who are ignorant of new research refuse to test them because they do not fit the “classic” profile.

The result is that patients are left to their own devices.

As the gluten-free diet craze explodes, the truth about celiac disease, the syndrome treated by the diet, is being missed…and people who should be cured are still sick and dying.
