Celiac Disease Awareness Campaign

Celiac disease is an immune reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. The disease affects about one in 141 people in the United States.1

The Awareness Campaign provides current, comprehensive, science-based information about the symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of celiac disease, also known as celiac sprue, nontropical sprue, and gluten-sensitive enteropathy.
