section 4: Celiac Disease
Celiac disease is luckily very manageable in college and many of the tips and tricks for food allergic individuals going to college are the same for those with celiac disease going to college. Luckily, the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness has their own college guidelines which can be found by clicking here. Because gluten free diets are now a common trend, one important thing to do when meeting with dining hall staff or when asking about ingredients is to make it clear that you have celiac disease. Having celiac disease is not the same as electively avoiding gluten and it is important that you make sure food preparation staff know that so they can help keep you safe.
