Celiac Disease Foundation (CDF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 1990 to improve the quality of life for all people affected by celiac disease and non-celiac wheat sensitivity through funding important advocacy, education, and research initiatives. Today, the Foundation leads the fight to increase the rate of diagnosis, to improve treatments, and to find a cure for celiac disease and non-celiac wheat sensitivity.
Affecting 1% of the population, celiac disease is one of the world’s most prevalent genetic autoimmune conditions. In the United States, celiac disease is also one of the least diagnosed (only 20%), with an estimated 2.5 million children and adults continuing to suffer needlessly. Long-term health complications of undiagnosed celiac disease include: cancers, coronary heart disease, osteoporosis, neurological deficits, anemia, and generalized poor quality of life.
