When you are first diagnosed with celiac disease, the thought of changing your diet and lifestyle, sometimes to a great extent, can be overwhelming. Or, like so many who have had celiac disease for years, you may wonder if you are paying enough attention to your health – are you doing as well as you could be? We built CeliacNow to help you feel more comfortable and empowered about your health. The site is devoted to teaching the nutritional and medical management of celiac disease and the gluten-free diet!

Celiac disease is one of the most common autoimmune disorders in the world. It affects as many as one in every 100 people. The number of celiac disease diagnoses is only expected to grow as doctors and the public learn more about it.

The world of celiac disease is ever-changing. And education is a powerful tool.

OUR GOALS:

  1. To offer you easy access to concise, correct information about celiac disease, nutrition, and the gluten-free diet. Armed with this information, you can play an active role in your care, manage your disease with success, and improve your health and quality of life.
  2. To offer you some of the same information and resources about celiac disease that you would gain after visiting a skilled registered dietitian
  3. To add new topics and update existing information on a regular basis. We will start with nutrition information and begin to add medical information in 2013.
