CD Fast Facts
1 in 133 Americans have celiac disease (“CD”), which affects more people in the U.S than Chron’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s and Cystic Fibrosis combined. Complications from CD incudes major gastro-intestinal complications, anemia, dermatitis, seizures, diabetes, colon cancer, fertility issues, neurological disorders, lymphoma, osteoporosis and malnourishment.

Currently there are no pharmaceutical cures for CD and they can only be cured through gluten-free diet. CD is more prominent in women than men and affects Caucasian/European ethnicities most prominently, however, there are increasingly more CD cases found in Asia. It is estimated that 5-22% of celiac patients have an immediate family member (first degree relative) who also has celiac disease.

CD affects families in which food purchases for one become the family menu. The average cost of misdiagnosis per person/per year of celiac, not including lost work time, is estimated to be US$5,000 to 12,000. The celiac disease diagnosis rate may reach 50-60% by 2019, thanks to efforts to raise public awareness of celiac disease. (Source: Datamonitor Group, 2009)
