Kristin Voorhees of NFCA

Kristin Voorhees2Kristin Voorhees was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2007.  Kristin decided she wanted to help others who suffer from the disease.  While in school she shined and selected by National Foundation for Celiac Awareness.

Currently, Kristin is a Health Care Relations Manager for the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness in Ambler.  Kristin was recently chosen to be apart of the Drug Information Association’s Patient Advocate Fellows.

Common symptoms of Celiac disease are diarrhea, nausea and no symptoms at all.  Common misdiagnoses are irritable bowel syndrome and lactose intolerance.  According to Kristin, Celiac disease affects 1 in 141 people and 83% have not been diagnosed yet.

Determining if a patient has Celiac disease is based on a blood test and then a biopsy of the patient’s small intestine. 

“Through empowerment, education, advocacy and advancing research, the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) drives diagnoses of celiac disease and other gluten-related disorders and improves the quality of life for those on a lifelong gluten-free diet.” - NFCA’s Mission Statement.

Congratulations & Thank You Kristin Voorhees!
