Celiac disease, also known as Celiac sprue or Coeliac disease, is an autoimmune disorder of the digestive system. Suspected to be in one out of every 133 Americans, this disease is basically an allergy to wheat. With wheat found in every product from bread to desserts, a diagnosis of Celiac disease can leave the patient confused and in for a huge lifestyle change.
Although Celiac disease can run in families, many who are diagnosed can have no family or friends to turn to after a diagnosis. However, there are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of sites and blogs to be found on the internet. Many of these are written by people who have been diagnosed with Celiac disease, have a family member who is, or are just experts in the area. To help those who are newly diagnosed or have years of experience, we have collected the top 50 Celiac blogs below.
