About SACS

Welcome to the official web site of the Southern Arizona Celiac Support Group, CSA/USA Chapter 15. We are dedicated to assisting Southern Arizona residents and visitors with celiac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis or non-celiac gluten sensitivity along with their family and friends.

Our Objectives

  • Educating newly diagnosed patients with CD/DH on how to switch to a gluten-free (GF) diet: i.e., no wheat, barley, oats or rye or other grains containing harmful gluten.
  • Aiding members in self-education by assisting in their search for information, finding hidden sources of gluten, and determining safe sources of food.
  • Alerting members to recent research concerning CD.
  • Educating the medical community about recent research that indicates that CD is drastically under-diagnosed in the US because it actually occurs in about 1 out of 133 people instead of the one in five thousand that are actually diagnosed.
