Free celiac disease screening on Saturday October 9 at University of Chicago

Celiac disease, or an inability to process gluten (a protein in wheat and other grains), is a rapidly growing medical condition. Symptoms are wide-ranging and serious and, among children, can include a failure to gain weight and delayed puberty in addition to gastrointestinal problems.

The University of Chicago’s Celiac Disease Center will be holding a free screening and public information expo on Saturday, October 9. In addition to blood screenings, which require pre-registration, hospital experts will answer questions about celiac disease and vendors will showcase gluten-free products.
