The gluten found in grain may trigger celiac disease in some people. By keeping a close eye on your diet, you can remedy many of the symptoms. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.
  • Soothe the symptoms

    Try over-the-counter loperamide (Imodium A-D) and bulk-forming laxatives, such as methylcellulose (Citrucel) or psyllium (Konsyl, Metamucil, Perdiem), to stop diarrhea; treat gas and bloating with simethicone (Mylicon, Gas-X)

  • Supplement with pancreatic enzymes

    When starting a gluten-free diet, take these enzymes with each meal for at least one month to improve weight gain

  • Mix in a multi

    Take a daily high potency multivitamin that will supply your body with all the essential micronutrients, especially iron, vitamin D, vitamin K, calcium, magnesium, folic acid, and zinc

  • Breast-feed your baby

    Reduce your newborn’s risk of developing celiac disease by breast-feeding for more than a month

  • Go gluten-free

    Work with a knowledgeable health professional to find out which gluten-filled foods should be avoided

  • Talk to your doctor

    Ask about prescription drugs that may help symptoms, such as immune system suppressants and anti-inflammatory drugs including prednisone (Deltasone), prednisolone (Prelone), azathioprine (Imuran), and cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan)

  • Get routine checkups

    Have your doctor monitor your bone health, check for anemia, and make sure you are not developing nutritional deficiencies
