Currently, it is estimated that one out of one hundred Americans has celiac disease, yet only 5% of them are diagnosed correctly. In this country, it takes an average of 6 to 11 years to get a proper diagnosis of celiac disease. Additionally, at least 10% of the population is dealing with gluten sensitivity. If left untreated, these gluten-related disorders can lead to over 300 associated signs and symptoms, many of which can be reversed and/or stopped.
We now know that these disorders can affect anyone, anywhere, at anytime. Unfortunately, at this point, the general public and healthcare professionals know little to nothing about gluten-related disorders. As a result, many people are living far below their health potential; some are putting up with chronic aliments and others are living with an incorrect diagnosis - becoming sicker by the day.
This program will give both health professionals and patients a greater understanding of how to recognize, diagnose, and treat gluten-related disorders.
