CGH Patient Education Spotlight: Celiac Disease

Aug. 30, 2017

This month’s CGH patient page looks at key points patients need to know about celiac disease.

The patient education section for the September 2017 issue of Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology provides information on celiac disease. An overview of the disease, as well as common symptoms, testing and some highlights of a gluten-free diet provide key points for you to begin a discussion with your patients.
 
For more information on celiac disease and additional patient resources visit the AGA Patient Info Center
 
The AGA Patient Education Section in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology includes up-to-date information and resources for patients on GI conditions, procedures, and diet and medication. Every month, the journal will feature a different topic. The page contains information that comes from experts and is written at the lowest reading level possible, so all patients can understand the material. The pages are also available for reprint, so they can be easily distributed to patients. Extended, more in-depth content on each topic is always available in the AGA Patient Info Center
