Welcome to our “celiacdiseaseindia.com” website, a comprehensive source of information about celiac disease in India.
It is a misbelief that celiac disease is a disease of only Europe and other Western countries. Celiac disease has been convincingly reported from India; mainly Northern India. The disease is aptly called ‘chameleon –like’ making it likely to be missed and misdiagnosed. Moreover, most professionals continue to consider the disease ‘rare’ looking for only the ‘classic presentation’ in children. Hence, many celiac patients remain unnoticed, undiagnosed and suffer for many years.
This site intends to serve as a complete educational tool for people with celiac disease, their families and the health care professionals. We hope you find the site and the information provided useful.
