Do you have unanswered general nutrition questions about the gluten-free diet and lifestyle?
NCA now has a team of experts who are happy to answer your general questions about celiac disease.
This month, Erica Peltz, MA, EdM in psychological counseling from Purchase, NY provides answers.
This month's answered questions:
- How do I host someone with celiac disease at my house? I want to do the right thing but I'm actually a little scared I'm going to do something wrong!
- I seem to know more about celiac disease than my doctor. Should I just keep researching this disease on my own?
- I’m really shy and newly diagnosed. I have a hard time eating outside of the house because I’m embarrassed to speak up for myself. Do you have any suggestions for people like me?
Please submit questions that are applicable to a general gluten-free audience. We regret that personal clinical questions (medical history, labs, supplements, etc.) cannot be addressed.
Time allowing, every effort will be made to answer all submitted questions.
