Celiac awareness month is in May but really, it should be all year round. So many people still do not know about this disease which can affect everything from the brain to the skin. You can test negative for celiac disease and still have it (your antibodies may not have been elevated that day) or have what is called Non Celiac Gluten-Sensitivity or NCGS. For those with the latter, gluten affects them as much as someone with celiac disease.
