Celiac Disease Centers
Celiac disease centers at university medical centers and hospitals across the country conduct research, offer clinical care and provide a wealth of information for patients and medical providers on their websites.
Join the Celiac Listserv to participate in a national conversation on all topics related to celiac disease, gluten intolerance, the gluten-free diet, products and eating out. Read the announcements, questions and answers, or pose your own questions.
Drug Development and Research
Research is under way by this list of companies and institutions to find pharmaceutical or alternative treatments for celiac disease. Some of them are in clinical trial, ranging from early to late stage development.
There’s nothing like getting one of these beautiful, glossy magazines filled with useful articles, tips and delicious recipes in your mailbox. Their websites, digital versions and emailed newsletters are also full of great information.
National Institutes of Health
Science-based information about the symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of celiac disease from the NIH’s National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, in both English and Spanish. The NIH is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
National Nonprofit Foundations
The four national celiac disease and gluten sensitivity nonprofit organizations offer a variety of services to their membership and the public, improving lives in a multitude of ways, increasing awareness, or promoting our interests at the local and national levels. Join one or more and receive newsletters and emailed updates. Their websites and emails are a treasure trove of information and news. Most are free to join.
Regional Nonprofit Foundations
Regional independent nonprofit organizations dedicated to celiac disease have extensive resources that are useful for everyone, not just those who reside in or travel to these major metropolitan areas.
Social Media and Blogs
Most gluten-free manufacturers, cookbook authors, support groups and national organizations serving the gluten-free community have an extensive social media presence. In addition, there are countless blogs on every facet of gluten-free life. Everyone’s list of favorites is different so explore the ever-changing landscape.
Yahoo Groups (local and national)
It’s easy to join a local or national Yahoo Group and jump into conversations (or just read others’ conversations) about the topics that most interest you. Trade information about products, restaurants, doctors and much more. Celiacs were networking on Yahoo before other forms of social media became prevalent, and the celiac Yahoo Groups are still going strong. The discussions are archived and searchable.
