If you’ve recently been diagnosed with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, or if you have a relative or friend with the problem, you’re likely to be uncertain about a lot of things, and have many questions. You'll likely have heard about the gluten-free diet and the necessary changes to lifestyle, and you may be feeling overwhelmed by all the information, sometimes conflicting, available from many sources.
We know that change can be daunting, especially when it affects your whole life, and it can take a while to adjust. Members of the Canadian Celiac Association can help you by providing science-based information and support as you make the adjustments to, and continue to live a gluten-free lifestyle. You can count on the Association to supply the help you need to understand how to be sure that what you eat is gluten-free, and that your gluten-free food will provide good nutrition for your future health.
The Ottawa Chapter of the Canadian Celiac Association offers information sessions that will help you as you start on your path to a potentially exciting new lifestyle. Check our Events page to see when the next Celiac Information Meeting will be held (at the Riverside United Church, 3191 Riverside Drive, Ottawa). And feel free to contact us for more information, using the form on our Contact Us page or at info (at) ottawaceliac.ca.
These sessions are free and open to all, whether or not you are a member of the Canadian Celiac Association. We do hope that you will join the Association and its Ottawa Chapter, as we continue to act as the national voice for people who are affected adversely by gluten, and work to improve diagnosis and quality of life for those who have to lead a gluten-free lifestyle.
OUR VISION: The gluten problem. Found. Treated. Cured.
