Through empowerment, education, advocacy and advancing research, the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness drives diagnoses of celiac disease and other gluten-related disorders and improves the quality of life for those on a lifelong gluten-free diet.

We believe in a patient-centered healthcare model that is grounded in science, promotes collaboration and supports a comprehensive approach to health and wellness.

__________________


Celiac disease is a genetic autoimmune disorder that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food. Left untreated, people with celiac disease can develop further complications such as other autoimmune diseases, infertility, thyroid disease and some forms of cancer. An estimated 1% of the population has celiac disease, but 83% of those who have it are still undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.

The only known treatment for celiac disease is a lifelong adherence to a gluten-free diet.
