Collaborative Webinar with Diabetes Canada
Did you know that the link between type 1 diabetes mellitus and celiac disease was first established in the 1960s? The estimated prevalence of celiac disease in patients with type 1 diabetes is approximately 6%, and about 1% in the general population. Due to the significantly higher prevalence of celiac disease in diabetes patients, many doctors recommend getting screened for celiac disease after a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes, as well as celiac disease patients getting screened for type 1 diabetes. To learn more join us for this very informative event.
The CCA Fall Conference 2021 is the national conference where Canadians with celiac disease and gluten related disorders, health professionals, researchers, policy-makers, academics, food manufacturers and distributors, come together to strengthen efforts to improve celiac disease management and quality of life, to share the latest research and information, to promote best practices and to advocate for celiac disease issues and policies grounded in research. Registration is Now Open!
