The next Celiac Education Day and Free Blood Screening is planned for Saturday, October 21. Registration will open October 1. Please http:/cureceliac.org for our eNewsletter to receive updates.
Free Blood ScreeningDuring Celiac Education Day we offer testing for up to 500 people from all over the country, including a free antibody blood screening to test people at risk for celiac disease. Many of the participants would not otherwise have access to celiac disease testing because either their doctors refused to carry out the tests or their insurance would not cover the cost, or they were uninsured altogether.
You are eligible for the blood screening if:
- You have been on a gluten-containing diet for 12 weeks prior to testing
- You have a close family member who has celiac disease or type 1 diabetes
- You have Down syndrome
- You have a related autoimmune condition such as rheumatoid arthritis or type 1 diabetes
- You have digestive problems, chronic fatigue syndrome, osteopenia, osteoporosis, or type 1 diabetes
