What is Celiac Disease?

Celiac disease is a COMMON, genetically linked autoimmune disease. An environmental STRESS can activate celiac disease. In people with celiac disease, gluten exposure evokes an immune mediated response  throughout the body generally with measurable damage to the intestinal lining. Some of the most common symptoms are joint pain, anemia, diarrhea, constipation, fatigue and irritability.

THE BIG QUESTION: What is on the label?

THE ANSWER: Not enough information!


Is a potential gluten source ingredient present in product or processing?
Even the manufacturer may not know.

Common inactive ingredients purchased on the open market

which may include gluten:

            pregelatinized starch  



           microcrystalline cellulose


The CSA position is to advocate that manufacturers declare the name and derivative* source of all excipients in drug product on the official label.

* Derivative source means the botanical, animal, or other source of origin.

The results of the CSA survey taken in 2013 shows that our members take an average of 9 pills per day.  In 2007 the average was 8 pills per day.

The most pills (prescriptions and supplements) taken by a member in one day was 53.
