Celiac Disease

According to the National Institutes of Health 1 percent of Americans suffer with Celiac Disease, but many have not been diagnosed and are not being treated.  I have recently had friends and patrons ranging in ages from 40 somethings to 80 somethings approach me as newly diagnosed individuals needing information regarding Celiac Disease and a gluten-free diet.

For those who have recently been diagnosed or who need or want to keep up to date with their pre-existing condition MedlinePlus is a great place to start.  You’ll find information regarding  overviews , diagnosis and symptoms, treatment, nutrition, disease management and more.

NOAH (New York Online Access to Health) – Celiac Disease offers links to authoritative information for all age groups with comprehensive coverage.

The National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse is also a good resource with information answering common questions about Celiac Disease.

Watch an informational video from the Mayo Clinic, and then visit their website for more on Celiac Disease.

For more information visit the Syosset Public Library Health Reference center to browse, or you can speak to a Health Reference librarian and let us do the research for you. 

Here is a small sample of books in the Health Reference Center on this topic
