Summertime calls for BBQs, dining out, brunch with friends, and more. Summer and food seem to be intertwined, but what can be a fun experience for most can be a daunting experience for those with food allergies.
Meredith started the t-shirt brand Celiac Cutie to bring about fun, laughter and empowerment to those affected by an autoimmune disease, as well as other challenges. A portion of all t-shirt sales goes back to the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University, where she personally found help after her diagnosis.
The Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University Medical Center is one of a few centers in the United States that provides comprehensive medical care, including nutrition, for adult and pediatric patients with celiac disease and is diagnosing and treating thousands of patients annually from around the world.
Celiac Disease is not curable, which means those affected by this disease will have to avoid eating gluten their entire lives.
Here are some quick facts about Celiac Disease and why we should all work to give back to those affected by this autoimmune disease:
- About 1 in 100 people — about 1 percent — have celiac disease
- It is estimated that 83% of Americans who have celiac disease are undiagnosed or misdiagnosed with other conditions
- A 100% gluten-free diet is the only existing treatment for celiac disease today.
