CCA partners with McMaster University on gluten free on campus (May 2021)
Access to gluten-free diet across Canadian Universities and Colleges
Students currently attending a Canadian University or College who may have been diagnosed with CD, non-celiac-gluten sensitivity (NCGS) or follow a gluten-free diet (GFD) for another reason are invited to participate.
As the number of individuals adhering to a gluten-free diet rises, there is a need to identify barriers that students adopting a GFD face on campus at Canadian universities to ease their access to viable gluten-free options. Our hope is that this survey will help us understand more about the challenges faced by students adopting a GFD in Canada, further contributing towards more education in the near future.
This survey will take approximately 3 minutes to complete. This collaborative research study survey conducted by clinicians and researchers from McMaster University and the Canadian Celiac Association.

This past spring CCA along with many patient organizations across the world participated in a study of patients with celiac disease (CeD) and their experience and knowledge of COVID-19. Numerous studies suggest that celiac disease (CeD) is associated with an increased risk of respiratory infections. However, how it relates to the risk of COVID-19 is unknown. To address this gap, the investigators conducted a cross-sectional study to evaluate whether patients with self-reported CeD are at an increased risk of contracting COVID-19. Patients were asked to complete an online survey and a total of 18,000 individuals participated. The Canadian celiac community represented the vast majority of participants in the study and we thank them for their participation. The study concluded that patients with CeD have similar odds of contracting COVID-19 and may not need to take additional precautions to prevent exposure aside from the recommended to the general public. Longitudinal studies employing repeated measurements will contribute to a better understanding on whether the risk of contracting COVID-19 in CeD changes over time.

In a systematic review and meta-analysis, the study found an increased risk of IBD in patients with celiac disease and increased risk of celiac disease in patients with IBD, compared with other patient populations. High-quality prospective cohort studies are needed to assess the risk of celiac disease-specific and IBD-specific biomarkers in patients with IBD and celiac disease.
