May 1 marks the start of Celiac Awareness Month … and oh, how far we've come. Gluten-free foods are more prevalent and better than ever before, restaurants and other food service outlets are getting on board, and millions of people are finding their health improved by cutting out this common protein found in wheat, rye, barley, and cross-contaminated foods.
Even so, questions and even skepticism remain, so education remains paramount. Gluten Dude, a terrific gluten-free blogger, created this infographic of common symptoms. I love that it's not based on reports by the medical establishment; it's based on feedback from real people living with the disease. Plus it's categorized by area, and it highlights in red the most commonly reported symptoms. So far the best infographic I've seen on this.

Oh, and do not be fooled by Fitness Republics' blatant rip-off. Seriously?
