Free Gluten Free Starter Kit

15 Oct

I came across a great resource for those newly diagnosed with Celiac Disease and Gluten Sensitivity.

The Gluten-Free Care Package is a basket of helpful and essential resources, including a gluten-free food guide, support group information, and food samples to introduce people with celiac disease to a gluten-free diet. Since beginning the program in 2001, we have distributed thousands of Gluten-Free Care Packages to people newly biopsy-diagnosed with celiac disease all over the country.


This free starter kit from the University of Chicago is a great way to get a patient to start managing a complex disease.  It’s also a great idea if you have GF friends and are looking for ways to make them feel safe and welcome in your home.

    I wish my GI doctor would’ve given me a Gluten-free care package after my diagnosis. Instead he told me to go home and look it up on the Internet because he didn’t know much about it himself! I no longer have him! That was 7 years ago.

      It’s funny we are always trained NOT to send our patients to the Internet for medical advice; but is common practice for celiac disease. Like, a doctor would never say: ” yes. You are HIV+. You can look it up on google. Please make a follow up appointment with me in 2weeks!”
