Resources - celiac disease
If you have been diagnosed with celiac disease , it is very important that you receive counseling from a registered dietitian who specializes in celiac disease and gluten-free diets. Such an expert can give you tell you where gluten-free products can be purchased, and will share important resources that explain your disease and treatment.
A dietitian is also uniquely qualified to provide counseling on associated conditions that commonly accompany celiac disease, such as diabetes, lactose intolerance, weight loss or gain, or vitamin/mineral deficiency.
