Celiac disease support group to meet
The Woodbury Eastside Celiac Disease Support Group will meet at 7 p.m., Thursday, March 19 in meeting room "A" on the second floor of Woodbury Allina Health Clinic, 8675 Valley Creek Road. Featured speaker will be Mark Norman, a nutritionist and the owner of a new gluten-free store in Woodbury.
The group is open to anyone with the disease or maintaining a gluten-free diet for general health or allergy reasons.
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder in which the presence of gluten (the protein in wheat, rye, barley, some oats and related grains) damages the small intestine causing nutrient malabsorption.
