Celiac Disease - Home Treatment

If symptoms return

If symptoms of celiac disease return after your child or you were symptom-free while following a gluten-free diet, it usually means that foods containing gluten were eaten. Here are some tips:

  • Try to write down what your child eats. Keep detailed notes about every meal and snack.
  • Check food labels, looking closely for ingredients that may be sources of hidden gluten. Your local library or bookstore should have resources that can help you identify potential sources of hidden gluten.
  • If your child's symptoms return, be sure to ask detailed questions about what he or she has recently eaten away from home.

Call your doctor if you are confident that your or your child's diet is gluten-free but symptoms have returned or continue.
