There Are Three Primary Reasons to Join:
1. As a celiac disease patient or caregiver, you know the disease better than anyone. By sharing your or your loved one’s medical history and experiences living with celiac disease or non-celiac gluten/wheat sensitivity, you directly help researchers find treatments and a cure.
2. You have the opportunity to make your voice heard. By sharing your thoughts and opinions on potential treatments for celiac disease and non-celiac gluten/wheat sensitivity, you are helping to inform what patients want to see in future treatments for celiac disease and non-celiac gluten/wheat sensitivity. The valuable information we have in iCureCeliac® links together the patient community and the research and medical communities.
3. iCureCeliac® is our best path to a cure for celiac disease and non-celiac gluten/wheat sensitivity. Your medical data is incredibly valuable. By aggregating large amounts of data from thousands of patients living with celiac disease and non-celiac gluten/wheat sensitivity, researchers are able to analyze disease patterns and help answer questions that will ultimately lead to a cure.
Why is This Important?
Celiac disease affects an estimated 1 in 100 people worldwide, but the majority of those individuals are either undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. This is alarming given that studies show the later the age of diagnosis, the greater the chance of developing another autoimmune disorder, like type 1 diabetes, thyroid disease, and multiple sclerosis (MS).
Furthermore, undiagnosed patients or those who do not maintain a strict gluten-free diet can develop additional serious health conditions including heart disease, anemia, osteoporosis, infertility, epilepsy, migraines, and in some cases, intestinal cancer.
