What are Treatments for Celiac Disease?

There are no drugs that treat celiac disease. You’ll need to go on a strict gluten-free diet. In addition to staying away from bread, cake, and other baked goods, you’ll also need to avoid beer, pasta, cereals, and even some toothpastes, medications, and other products that contain gluten.

If you have a severe nutritional deficiency, your doctor may have you take gluten-free vitamins and mineral supplements and will prescribe medication if you have a skin rash.

After you’ve been on a gluten-free diet for a few weeks, you should start to feel better, as your small intestine begins to heal.
