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!
