Another sign that celiac disease is making it to the mainstream media.

On August 15, 2009, the New York Times published an article titled “The Expense of Eating With Celiac Disease.”

The article noted that the extra cost of gluten free foods is not reimbursed by insurance plans – in contrast with other countries such as Great Britain and Italy where gluten free foods are prescribed or patients receive government stipends for the food.

The article also notes how you can cut costs while maintaining your diet and how you can write off the costs of gluten free foods on your taxes.

Definitely worth a read!
