Living gluten-free can often feel like an isolated lifestyle, and finding a gluten-free support group can be challenging at first. While in-person meetings and gatherings can be super helpful and encouraging, rest assured that digital support groups can be just as beneficial. You just need to find the groups that are right for you!

Joining Facebook Groups
Search for groups, whether they are local or national, specific to your needs. If you’re a parent looking for ideas on how to make you child with celiac’s dieting easier, search for ‘parents of celiac kids’ then either search Pages to follow or Groups to join if you’re more interested in interacting with other parents. If you’re just looking for general support, search “celiac disease support groups,” then when you find a group that looks relevant, click +Join Group. These groups serve as a forum where you can ask questions, express concerns and get feedback, support or ideas from those in similar situations as you. Note that there may not be doctors or necessarily professionals responding to you in these groups, but rather everyday people who may have once been in the same position as you.
We’d love your feedback and thoughts on the groups mentioned above! Are there any other groups you’d recommend to others searching for celiac disease or gluten allergy or intolerance support?
