If you’re reading this there’s a good chance that you have a problem with gluten. Or someone you know may have the problem. You may have a diagnosis in hand or maybe just a suspicion. And the whole deal may feel a bit overwhelming.
Welcome! to theThere is nothing to join and no membership dues. We are a fully volunteer organization.
Lancaster Area Celiacs
Maybe, we can help!
(Of course, that means we’re always looking for volunteers to help shoulder the load. And we gratefully accept donations to help out with mailing costs, meeting room charges, speaker stipends, etc. )
You are NOT alone! In the document, Facts & Figures of Celiac Disease, on Factsheets page of their website, The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center reports:
"Celiac disease affects 1% of healthy, average Americans. That means at least 3 million people in our country are living with celiac disease—97% of them are undiagnosed."
