The incidence of celiac disease has increased fourfold in the past 50 years.
An estimated 3 million people are afflicted with celiac disease, but 95 percent of are undiagnosed.
Overlooking or inadequately treating celiac disease can increase the risk of death.
Once diagnosed, people with celiac disease are challenged living a gluten-free lifestyle. Gluten is often hidden in additives, binders, flavorings and medications. Patients admitted for the simplest procedures find their health can be seriously compromised by exposure to gluten within a healthcare setting.
To improve the rate of diagnosis by increasing awareness of celiac disease and its many manifestations.
To promote appropriate care of the person diagnosed with celiac disease, including support and follow-up services and implementation of the gluten-free diet.
