So what if I told you that there was a disease that out there that 95% of the people with it had no idea they had it? What if I told you that if it remained untreated it could have risks of malnutrition to cancer? Now, even though it affects only 1% of the population (that we know of), I believe we need to open our eyes to this and be made aware of what the disease is, it's symptoms and how it is treated. Today we are going to talk about Celiac Disease. It is one of the most common autoimmune and gastrointestinal diseases. People with celiac disease may have typical gastrointestinal symptoms, but others have seemingly unrelated problems, and diagnosis is delayed or never occurs. If you have unexplained depression, anemia, infertility, bone degeneration, liver disease, or trouble with your balance then you need to listen closely to today's interview and go out and get yourself a copy of the book, " REAL LIFE WITH CELIAC DISEASE: TROUBLESHOOTING & THRIVING GLUTEN FREE." The book is written by Melinda Dennis who  is the Nutrition Coordinator and a founding member of the Celiac Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts. It is co-written by Dr. Daniel Leffler who is the Director of Clinical Research and also a founding member of the Celiac Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts. I need to mention also that Melinda was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 20 years ago!
