Increasing celiac disease diagnoses through family member education and testing is a top priority for the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA). This Celiac Disease Awareness Month, NFCA encourages you to TALK to your family about their genetic risk. TELL them the facts. URGE them to test.
We can show you how.
We know it can be tough to get the conversation about celiac disease testing started with your relatives. Research shows there is a right and wrong way to approach the subject. In short? Getting your relatives to understand their risk is possible.
Hear from those who have been there and who have successfully worked with their relatives to get tested for celiac disease.

Celiac disease is a genetic autoimmune disorder triggered by the ingestion of gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. An estimated 1 in 133 Americans has celiac disease, yet 83% remain either undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. Currently, the only treatment is a strict, lifelong gluten-free diet.
