Where did the term “Celiac Disease” come from?
Celiac sprue disease was first described in the second century, but it wasn’t until the 20th century that rudimentary causative factors were identified. Terminology changed as research confirmed that celiac disease diagnosed in children was the same disease as non-tropical sprue diagnosed in adults. The term “celiac disease” is now most commonly used. Another term for the same condition includes “gluten sensitive enteropathy.”
The CSA Cel-Kid’s Network, Diet Self-Management, Recipes, CSA’s Executive Chef (you can email questions to him, or recommend local chefs who “do gluten-free right”) are a few of the manyofferings here.
