Free Webinar Nov. 14: “How-To Tips on Managing Celiac Disease and Diabetes”

NFCA_WebinarType 1 diabetics are at an increased risk for developing celiac disease, which adds a challenge to an already strict diet. In fact, both celiac disease and diabetes are associated with the HLA-DQ2 and HLA-DQ8 genes and 3-8 % of people with type 1 diabetes will have biopsy-confirmed celiac disease.

Join the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness for a free webinar on Wednesday, November 14, 2pm EST/11am PST (rescheduled from October 31), as they review the research on the link between these two conditions and provide dietitians with strategies on how to successfully treat patients living gluten-free while also needing to manage their diabetes. This webinar features industry expert Laurie A. Higgins, MS, RD, LDN, CDE, Coordinator of Pediatric Nutrition Education & Research, Pediatrics, Adolescent and Young Adult Section at Joslin Clinic.
