I have celiac disease.      I have a relative with celiac disease.                                          

Please read: A very important note on social media sharing:

It is important to note that simply sharing the Seriously, Celiac Disease video or its companion educational materials with family members instead of having a personal, one-on-one conversation can prevent relatives from being open to testing.

Please do not initiate a conversation about celiac disease testing with your relatives by simply sharing the Seriously, Celiac Disease video and discussion guides through email, social media and other online communications. NFCA's research-tested approach shows that family members want a one-on-one, in-person conversation and are not as likely to respond well to the idea of testing if a link is simply shared.

However, we do encourage you to share the video with others living with celiac disease so they too can help their family members get tested. Be sure to use the hashtag #TalkTellTest when you do!
