Please call 349-0294 for more information. CSA Michigan Capital Celiac/DH Group is a chapter of the Celiac Support Association. We provide support and education for those with Celiac Disease, Dermatitis herptiformis, gluten sensitivity, and others living a gluten free lifestyle. Celiac Disease is an autoimmune disease whereby the lining of the intestine is destroyed in the presence of any proteins from wheat, rye, or barley. Those experiencing Dermatitis herpetiformis have a very itchy rash caused by the inflammation from the proteins of wheat, rye, or barley. Persons can be sensitive to gluten without having Celiac Disease and have an inflammatory or allergic response. The only treatment is a strict diet without any proteins of wheat, rye, barley, and for some, oats.
