Celiac and Weight GAIN

 Weight. In the past, the “face” of Celiac Disease was consistently an underweight patient due to the malabsorption that occurs with the disease. And since poor weight gain is often indicative of Celiac Disease, it became the face of Celiac. But according to the Chicago Celiac Disease Center, 1 in 3 people diagnosed with Celiac Disease are overweight. Please “like” or “share” to spread awareness that you can ABSOLUTELY have Celiac Disease and be underweight OR overweight. *Lauren Lucille
