why you need a celiac diagnosis

Why Do I Need a Celiac Diagnosis?

I always get the question “why do I need a celiac diagnosis?” This is usually because people think because non-celiac gluten sensitivity (now called non-celiac wheat sensitivity) and a celiac both eat the same diet, that they are the same condition.

Gluten-Free Sunscreen + After Sun Repair with Goddess Garden

Step Beyond Celiac 5K

Donate to Celiac and the Beast’s KC5K Step Beyond Celiac Fundraiser!
