Most people who read this blog have probably already been diagnosed with celiac disease or another type of gluten intolerance. However, for those of you still in need of medical help, the Celiac Disease Foundation has created an online directory to help you find physicians in your area who specialize in celiac-related issues.
You can use the online directory to search by zip code for health providers in all 50 states. The directory can be found at celiac.org/celiac-disease/provider-directory.
“The CDF Healthcare Practitioner Directory provides an invaluable and critically needed service for patients with celiac disease and their caregivers, as well as those yet to be diagnosed,” said Marilyn G. Geller, Chief Executive Officer at Celiac Disease Foundation, in a press release.
“With less than 20% of patients with celiac disease diagnosed, finding practitioners who recognize the signs of celiac disease and treat patients appropriately is a challenge. The Directory serves as a local resource for those seeking specialized care," she said.
The Celiac Disease Foundation is one of several organizations that help people with celiac. In addition to its provider directory, you can also find other information on celiac disease on its website at celiac.org.
