State of Celiac Disease in Canada survey

In our latest blog post, we delve into the findings of the State of Celiac Disease in Canada survey, proudly sponsored by Promise Gluten Free. The survey, conducted over a twenty-year period, sheds light on the ongoing challenges faced by individuals living with celiac disease and gluten-related disorders.

Despite advancements in awareness and the availability of gluten-free food options, significant hurdles persist. One notable revelation is the prolonged time it takes for individuals to receive a celiac disease diagnosis, with many waiting over a decade for confirmation. This delay is attributed to various factors, including inconsistencies in diagnosis and care practices, as well as evolving symptom presentations.

Moreover, the financial strain of maintaining a gluten-free diet remains a pressing issue. The survey underscores the financial burden faced by individuals and families, highlighting the need for more accessible and affordable gluten-free options.

Furthermore, concerns regarding access to safe food are brought to the forefront. Whether in hospitals, assisted care facilities, or when dining out, individuals with celiac disease often encounter challenges in accessing gluten-free meals, leading to heightened anxieties about food safety.

At Promise Gluten Free, we recognize the importance of addressing these issues and advocating for positive change within the celiac community. We stand alongside Celiac Canada in their mission to improve screening, diagnosis, and management practices, as well as to enhance affordability and accessibility of gluten-free options.

Through our sponsorship of the State of Celiac Disease in Canada survey, we reaffirm our commitment to supporting individuals living with celiac disease and gluten-related disorders. Together, we strive to create a more inclusive and supportive environment for all individuals following a gluten-free lifestyle.
