Health Tip: Managing Celiac Disease

(HealthDay News) — Avoiding gluten is the most important factor in managing celiac disease, but more may be required.

Here are suggestions from the Mayo Clinic:

  • Check food labels carefully and to avoid all foods and care products that contain gluten. Some types of lipstick and toothpaste include gluten.
  • Since you’re avoiding certain foods, ask your doctor if you may need nutritional supplements.
  • See your doctor regularly for checkups and tests, including a possible endoscopy if you have current symptoms.
  • Work with a registered dietitian to make sure you’re getting the right nutrients.
