Canadians with celiac and other gluten related disorders often wait years for a diagnosis. We want to change that, but we need your help.
You can help all Canadians with celiac disease (CD) and gluten disorders live their best lives.
Your support will help fund research and education efforts, advocate for fully funded celiac screening, provide the expertise of registered dietitians, and promote innovative food safety initiatives.
We are a lifeline to people living with the reality of CD.
Celiac disease is a life-long autoimmune condition that has no cure or pharmacological treatment. Left undiagnosed it can cause life-altering and even life-threatening conditions. Sadly, it is estimated that just 15% of people living with CD in Canada have been properly diagnosed.
