NJTV - Going Gluten Free After Celiac Diagnosis

What is Celiac Disease?
Celiac Disease is a lifelong digestive disorder, found in individuals who are genetically susceptible, that results in damage to the small intestine by interfering with the absorption of nutrients. Celiac Disease is unique in that a specific food component, gluten, has been identified as the culprit. Gluten is the common name for the offending proteins in specific cereal grains that are harmful to persons with CD. These proteins are found in all forms of wheat (including durum, semolina, spelt, kamut, einkorn, and faro), and related grains, rye, barley, and tritcale. Damage to the mucosal surface of the small intestine is caused by an immunologically toxic reaction to the ingestion of gluten.

Each year the Seashore Celiacs hold a Fundraising Dinner with all proceeds used to sponsor a needy child at the annual Camp Celiac.

Hosted by The Massachusetts and Rhode Island Celiac Support Group for Children & Adults, Too! (CSA Chapter 72), Camp Celiac is a rapidly growing, dedicated gluten-free, summer camp program for children and youth with celiac disease ages 7-16. Participants enjoy row boating, canoeing, swimming, arts and crafts, low and high ropes challenge courses, adventure programming, field events, team work, and all meals are gluten-free including campfire treats and barbecues!
