Support in the fight against celiac disease

1 min čitanja Objavljeno: 10.6.2015.

We supported the Celiac Association of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, which has been carrying out the project of educating and informing patients and the general public about celiac disease. Celiac disease is a lifelong, autoimmune disorder in which the consumption of gluten damages the small intestine, which results in the deterioration of the entire organ system, resulting in death, unless the patients adhere to the strict gluten-free diet, which is their only cure!

The Celiac Association has been operating for over twenty years, and its main activities include educating and informing patients and the general public, monitoring the medical condition of patients in cooperation with gastroenterology specialists, participating in numerous expert medical projects contributing to the research of the disease and improvement of the quality of life, as well as testing industrial foods for the presence of gluten.
