Located in Connecticut, The Greater New Haven Celiac Support Group (GNHCG) was established to help support those diagnosed with celiac disease by providing informative meetings, programs and timely newsletters about the gluten-free (GF) diet. Currently, strict adherence to the GF diet is the only effective treatment for celiac disease. If you have been diagnosed with celiac disease (CD) or dermatitis herpetiformis (DH), there is much for you, your family and friends to learn. You may be wondering which foods are safe. What exactly is gluten? How do you know if something contains gluten? And the list goes on.
While being diagnosed with CD and DH may at first seem daunting, our mission, through this website, is to give you choices and tools to help you navigate the gluten-free (GF) lifestyle.
The Greater New Haven Celiac Group is revamping its support group model this summer. We are “Under Construction” for the month of July. Look for updated information about local activities in August.
