Celiac Disease Awareness: "Is Gluten-Free for Me? Separating Food Facts From Fads"

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - January 17, 2011) - Cari Aschauer is one of the ever-growing number of sufferers of Celiac disease -- an auto-immune reaction in the intestine to eating gluten.

This story introduces the basics of this particular disease, including its wide-range of symptoms, physician testing, and suggested treatment.

Viewers will not only learn about Cari's personal story of combating severe gastrointestinal complications and depression. They'll also hear from a board-certified pathologist, who can speak about:

  • who is affected by Celiac disease
  • what gluten is, and how it exacerbates symptoms
  • what to do if you are experiencing the symptoms
  • description of the simple blood test that can confirm diagnosis
  • how simple diet changes can help treatment

While Celiac disease is growing more and more common, pathologists agree that if you are tested early and can make the appropriate adjustments to your diet, the negative effects of Celiac disease can be off-set that much sooner, or in Cari's case, be completely avoided. Since going gluten-free with her diet, Cari's intestinal lining has repaired itself from the effects of Celiac disease.
