Celiac Disease

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, as part of its Celiac Disease Awareness Campaign, has two new 2007 publications available for patients and their families.

The first is "What I Need to Know About Celiac Disease". This easy-to-read, 20-page booklet, discusses the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of celiac disease and provides some brief nutritional information related to a gluten-free diet. This brochure is available free of charge on the web and can also be downloaded in .pdf format.

The second resource is "Celiac Disease News", a summary of the latest news both in the medical literature and the popular press, related to Celiac disease. This newsletter can be accessed online in .pdf format or patients and their families can subscribe to the newsletter and receive the document by email.

Currently, these resources are available in English only.
