Join us for a joint webinar presentation - Celiac Disease, Gluten Sensitivity & the Gluten-Free Diet: What Every Nutrition Professional Needs to Know - Thursday, March 30, 2017, from 2-3:30 PM EDT - Presented by Shelley Case, BSc, RD
Celiac disease is an inherited autoimmune disorder affecting 1-2% of the population. An increased prevalence of celiac disease is seen in other associated disorders such as Type 1 diabetes, autoimmune thyroid and liver diseases, Sjogren’s syndrome and Down syndrome.

Non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) is another condition thought to be triggered by the ingestion of gluten, although other components in wheat and FODMAP carbohydrates also have been implicated. Due to conflicting research, the lack of diagnostic biomarkers, and overlapping symptoms with celiac disease and IBS, the true prevalence of NCGS is unknown. In addition, it has been found that some individuals with NCGS actually may have undiagnosed celiac disease.

Nutrition professionals need to stay abreast with the latest research about these gluten related disorders in order to effectively manage this growing population. This session will provide evidence-based and practical information about celiac disease and NCGS, including clinical presentations, diagnosis, dietary management; North American gluten-free labeling regulations; nutritional quality and safety of gluten-free products; and client education resources.
