USA Today Celiac Disease Supplement

Today, the USA Today has a 12 page supplement about celiac disease. The supplement, Celiac Disease: Your Guide to Living Gluten-Free, contains excellent information and is truly amazing awareness! There is great information from the Celiac Disease Foundation and Shelley Case, many advertisements, and even an Amy's coupon.

One of the best parts of the supplement is the following printed in bold on page four.

"CAUTION: If you suspect that you might be one of
the 3 million Americans suffering from celiac disease,
DO NOT remove gluten from your diet before
being tested. Doing so can lead to inaccurate test
results and misdiagnosis."

There is also a terrific section of celiac disease myths on page four, and one myth is that "celiac disease is an allergy to wheat". Thank you Media Planet!

Hi, the comic book is now available from Children's Hospital. We just got our copies in. Thanks for letting people know about it, form one of the docs who helped put it together.

I purchased a USA TODAY (12/03) issue & there wasn't anything in it about Celiac Disease. Did I miss it?? Denisestleted
