Nearly one out of every 133 Americans suffer from celiac disease, a
digestive disease that damages the small intestine because of a
sensitivity to gluten, which is found in wheat, rye, barley, and oats.
This hereditary disorder interferes with the absorption of nutrients

people manage and embrace the gluten-free lifestyle.
Whether you believe you or a loved one may have celiac disease, are

counseling to consultations with our specialists, Paoli Hospital is here
