All About Celiac Disease and Celiac Testing

The Only Treatment

Right now, there is no medical cure for celiac disease, not a vaccination, not a magic pill to temporarily allow you to eat gluten without consequence.

With research currently being conducted the world over, from Australia to the U.S. and Europe, those are coming. But for now, the only sure-fire way to deal with your errant immune system is to eliminate gluten from your diet, period. This means being hyper vigilant.

The good news is that as consumer awareness is be growing, governments and food manufacturers have taken notice of the growing needs of the celiac community. Food labels have vastly improved and there has been a dramatic surge in gluten-free food products on the market. Many savvy restaurants now offer gluten-free menus or at least dishes and a careful kitchen.

In managing life gluten-free, learn to read product labels and have a list of “safe” restaurants in your city. Don’t be afraid to ask questions when shopping, traveling or at a restaurant. Most important of all, make this your motto: When in doubt, leave it out.
