Celiac disease (CD) is a serious autoimmune disease. I know because I have it. I suffered for more than 25 years with chronic pain and debilitating health issues as a result. For me, 2007 was the year of diagnosis and a true game-changer year for me. That’s when I transformed my health with food alone on a gluten-free diet.
I remember how sick I was, but most of all, I recall not knowing anything about this disease. I wished for a trustworthy, fact-based resource to turn to for answers. As a research scientist, facts are my currency and the only way I make sense of health issues like CD. Consequently, I quickly got up to speed on the current research and a couple of years later. That’s when I began sharing what I learned in this space, along with some great new gluten-free recipes I developed along the way.
Most of all, my goal is the same now as it was then: Sharing reliable, current, research-based information with anyone who needs it. Therefore, to help you quickly locate articles you may find useful, I compiled this Celiac Disease Resource Page so that you can effortlessly locate the Smart Nutrition Backed by Science articles I write on this topic. I am constantly writing new articles for you, and they are added as they are published. If you have a specific topic you’d like me to research and write about, please leave a comment below.
