New England Celiac Disease Conference

1 Comment 08 September 2009

The Healthy Villi (Boston's celiac disease support group) and Beth Israel Deaconess Celiac Center (Boston) are collaborating to host the first New England Celiac Conference, an event that will support those with celiac disease and gluten intolerance. 

The forum will be held on Saturday, October 3, 2009 from 8:00am to 4:00pm at the Best Western Royal Plaza Hotel in Marlboro, MA.  The conference teams up with 24 other support groups around New England to offer this one of a kind experience.  We expect approximately 600 attendees!


The day will include experts speaking about celiac disease, workshops, product sampling and sales on vendor tables, continental breakfast, and buffet lunch.  In attendance will be those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance and dietitians, eager to learn about the gluten free diet and selection of food and beverages available.


For those interested in attending, there's still time to register!  Registration before September 17 is $35, and after that is $45, so register now!  For more information and the registration form, see .

    Celiac Information:

    > Serology ( Blood testing ) as well as Biopsy requires the presence of antibodies to gluten.

    > A gluten-free diet reduces circulating antibodies thus compromising a proper diagnosis. There are no clear guidelines for a proper gluten challenge to ensure sufficient circulating antibodies for a positive result; some individuals requires 1 month, other years.

    > Key Take HOME Message !

    With 1 in 100 being affected, Rule out Celiac Disease > Before going Gluten-Free; Regardless of Rationale.
