NFCA Campaign Targets At-Risk Family Members

The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness’s (NFCA) “Seriously, Celiac Disease” campaign encourages celiac disease sufferers to talk with at-risk family members.

“A new campaign is encouraging people with celiac disease to talk with their at-risk relatives about getting tested for the condition — and providing tools to make the conversations more productive,” reported Reuters Health.

According to NFCA, 1 in 133 Americans are diagnosed with celiacs disease. 83% of the nearly 3 million Americans remain undiagnosed. Patients must maintain  a healthy, gluten-free diet.
