Gluten Intolerance / Celiac Disease

Gluten intolerance, which is also known as Celiac disease, is an autoimmune disorder that damages the small intestine, thus interfering with nutrient absorption. Commonly found in people of European descent, the most common symptoms are abdominal bloating and pain, chronic diarrhea, weight loss, anemia and other symptoms of malnutrition. There is a very accurate blood test used to diagnosis Celiac disease.Treatment is easy to accomplish if the patient is willing to avoid all foods that contain gluten. This being said it seems that gluten is found in just about everything so in reality treatment is difficult to accomplish.One thing we have done at Johnson Drug is found a company that manufactures independently verified gluten-free supplements. We believe that supplements are important for all people suffering from Celiac disease since the disease in itself cause malnutrition. Numerous clinical studies show this to be true. We are currently offering the complete line of Pioneer Nutritional Formulas on sale for 20% off for the month of November.
