About SACS

Welcome to the official web site of the Southern Arizona Celiac Support Group, the local branch of the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG) (about GIG). We are dedicated to assisting Southern Arizona residents and visitors with celiac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis or non-celiac gluten sensitivity along with their family, friends and others who support them.

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.
