It is estimated that, for each person diagnosed with gluten intolerance, celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis, 90 are undiagnosed and suffering; the average time it takes to diagnose celiac disease from the onset of symptoms is ten years. However, most physicians still believe that this is a rare disorder and claim to have no patients with such problems.

Help GIG support those affected by these diseases with support, education and resources.

To find out more, please contact Becky Crooke (503-949-3779)
or Mary Wikle (503-524-8302) for details.
