National Celiac Disease Awareness Day
September 13th is National Celiac Disease Awareness Day. We celebrate it this day because it is Dr. Samuel Gee’s birthday. He was born in the UK on September 13, 1839 and is noted for writing the first paper documenting celiac disease. It was titled, On the Coeliac Affection, which was published in 1888.
In this day and age, we are seeing more people with autoimmune diseases. Celiac Disease is an autoimmune disease. Unsurprising, people prone to having one autoimmune disease will most likely develop more.ORIGINAL POST: Today is National Celiac Disease Awareness Day
Currently, there is no cure for celiac disease. The best treatment is a gluten-free diet.
The low FODMAP diet has been a blessing for me, personally. It is also recommended for those with celiac, gluten-sensitivities, and gastric issues.
