Gluten in Medications Survey

Speaking of hidden gluten…did you know the NFCA is teaming up with St. John’s University College of Pharmacy and Allied Health Professions to study the effects of gluten in medications on people who follow a gluten free diet? (It’s legit, because the FDA is funding it!)

The NFCA is asking everyone who follows a GF diet to take a survey (see badge at right or click the link), which should take 4 to 15 minutes. Your responses are crucial, because once the data is compiled, the team will test certain medications for gluten. Looking forward, this study will certainly lead to better medication labeling. If you or a loved one have celiac disease or must eat gluten free, please take the survey.
