Gluten Intolerance Group of Marin February 2014 Meeting

Posted Jan 08 2014 12:00am

gigofmarin1Gluten can trigger many autoimmune conditions:

  • Hashimoto’s, Grave’s Disease & other thyroid conditions
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Lupus
  • Vitiligo
  • Diabetes
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Balance & Movement Disorders
  • Alopecia
  • and others

Autoimmune diseases as a group are the third most common medical condition in America, affecting over 50 million people. And new research indicates that the two leading medical conditions–heart disease and cancer–can have an autoimmune component too.

For some people, autoimmune symptoms and the risk of developing additional autoimmune conditions can persist even after eliminating gluten. But there are actions one can take to alleviate symptoms and reduce risk.

Join us at the Gluten Intolerance Group of Marin’s next meeting on Tuesday, February 4 to learn more with Dr. David Lepp of The Bay Area Autoimmune and Thyroid Center.   

Whether you have celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, or are learning more about gluten free living for yourself, family or friends, we welcome you to the GIG of Marin. New members, friends, and loved ones are always welcome.

The Gluten Intolerance Group of Marin will meet:

  • Tuesday, February 4
  • 7:00 to 9:00pm
  • Community Room at Corte Madera Town Center (upstairs at PF Chang’s end) 770 Tamalpais Dr. Suite 201, Corte Madera, CA, 94925

We look forward to seeing you!
