May is Celiac Awareness Month

Celiac Awareness Month is an effort to spread information about an autoimmune disorder affecting at least 3 million Americans. When a person who has celiac disease consumes gluten - a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley - their immune system responds by causing damage to the small intestine. This results in symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea or other gastrointestinal discomfort. Over time, it can lead to more serious complications.
