Celiac Disease – Where can I discuss it?

February 13, 2009

Coeliac Awareness is increasing everyday.

However there’s still too much to be done to raise the public profile of celiac coeliac disease.

Members of the public can be justifiably confused by the mass of information found in all forms of the media regarding Celiac Coeliac Disease and the effects of a gluten Free Diet on its health.

Over the past few years we have seen reports on more accurate prevalence figures of coeliac disease in Australia being 1 in 100;

  • we have seen developments in the area of research into vaccines and cures;
  • a greater understanding of the safe inclusion of wheat-derived ingredients;
  • changes in food labeling laws that have led to the clearer identification of allergens on packaged foods;
  • increased awareness of associated conditions and
  • increased understanding of the role of blood test in screening and diagnosis of celiac coeliac disease.

Also increasing is an understanding of the way in which people with celiac coeliac dises now present their day-by-day problems.

You can now find online forums and discussion groups where you can ask your questions, share tips and stories, exchange ideas, or simply offer an opinion.

You probaby will hear back from like-minded people within hours.

Keep in mind that the accuracy of the information you get will vary.

Evaluate recommendations carefully, particularly concerning whether a product is Gluten Free or the information is reliable.

Important to note is you can find Celiacs relating their problems and ideas.

Below you can find some of the forums:

It’s the Digg for Celiacs.

It’s a little bit confusing at the first sight, however after you’ve understand the website you’ll realize i9t’s worth the effort.

It works as a mailing list in oppose to the normal forum format.
