Southern Arizona Celiac Support Group
Location & Contact:
We are dedicated to assisting Southern Arizona residents and visitors with celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis, as well as their family and friends.
Educating newly diagnosed patients with CD/DH on how to switch to a gluten-free (GF) diet: i.e., no wheat, barley, oats or rye or other grains containing harmful gluten.
Aiding members in self-education by assisting in their search for information, finding hidden sources of gluten, and determining safe sources of food.
Alerting members to recent research concerning CD.
Educating the medical community about recent research that indicates that CD is drastically under-diagnosed in the US because it actually occurs in about 1 out of 133 people instead of the one in five thousand that are actually diagnosed.
