Bloomberg News just reported that environmental influences have apparently caused a fivefold rise in Celiac disease during the last 30 years. People with Celiac disease have a problem digesting gluten, which is a protein in staple foods like bread, crackers, and pasta. Fatigue is a common symptom of Celiac disease.
The fatigue from Celiac disease can become severe enough to prevent you from working a complete day. If so, you could be eligible for disability benefits the same way that being afflicted with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or any other disease resulting in fatigue could render you eligible.
Celiac disease is frequently associated with other autoimmune disorders that also contribute to one’s inability to work. Therefore, even subsisting on a gluten-free diet may not improve one’s functionality sufficient to work a complete day at work. One of my clients was approved for disability benefits due to fatigue and weakness from Celiac disease and myasthenia gravis.Previous Next
