Celiac disease is a debilitating autoimmune disorder that affects an estimated 1% of the world’s population, including more than 3 million Americans. Only a small percentage of these people are currently diagnosed, but recent improvements in testing methods and greater public and professional awareness are expected to increase diagnoses by tenfold during the next few years.1 Because treatment is dietary, dietitians can expect to see a substantial increase in clients with celiac disease. This article will help dietitians identify the symptoms of nutrient deficiencies associated with celiac disease and provide guidance to meet their clients’ nutritional needs.



I haven't had a chance to read thru it all yet, but it looks like a very extensive article!

Thanks again Al,

Today's Dietitian Magazine...not just for dietitians anymore ;)

I subscribe to Today's Dietitian and saw this article, I'm seeing many more great Celiac and non-Celiac gluten intolerance articles these days and not just in TD. This article is written for dietitians but those with a gluten sensitivity should glean some great knowledge from it.

Iowa State University Extention is actually offering a 2 day gluten-free cooking and baking CPE class next week. I'm still waiting for more information.
