You’ve heard of Crohn’s
Disease, Cystic Fibrosis,
Multiple Sclerosis and
Parkinson’s disease.
Have you heard of
Celiac Disease?
Celiac Disease affects more
people than all of these
disorders combined! Alarming
numbers because Celiac
affects children as well as
adults, men and women.
Yet 97% of people with Celiac
Disease go undiagnosed.
Celiac Disease is one of
the most common genetic
conditions in the world. Celiac
is a multi-symptom, multi-system
disorder, activated by eating
gluten – proteins found in
wheat, rye and barley.
Symptoms vary and are not
always gastrointestinal.
If you can identify with any of
the symptoms or diagnoses
listed here – you might have
Celiac Disease.

Since 1990, Celiac Disease Foundation
(CDF) has been dedicated to promoting
awareness of Celiac Disease to increase
the rate, and shorten the time, of
diagnosis. CDF is constantly expanding
the supportive community for patients,
families and healthcare professionals.
CDF is actively involved in advocating
for patient concerns and networking
with other national and international
organizations to improve the quality of
life for Celiacs and their families.
Celiac Disease Foundation is a
nonprofit, public benefit corporation
dedicated to providing services and
support regarding Celiac Disease
and Dermatitis Herpetiformis, through
programs of awareness, education,
advocacy and research.
CDF is a national membership
organization. Become a member and
help support our ongoing efforts to raise
awareness of Celiac Disease. Find out
