The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the natural history of celiac disease in asymptomatic, screen-detected subjects having positive endomysial antibodies and the effects of an intervention with a gluten-free diet. The investigators hypothesize that these subjects may have decreased general health and benefit of the dietary treatment regardless of the small-bowel mucosal structure.
Asymptomatic, endomysial-antibody positive adults will be randomized to either continue with a normal, gluten-containing diet or start an intervention with a gluten-free diet irrespective of the small-bowel mucosal morphology. Several celiac-disease associated histological, serological and clinical markers will be evaluated both at baseline and after one year on trial.

The purpose of this study is to develope a novel method to determine gluten intake and to check gluten-free diet adherence in celiac patients by detection of gluten immunogenic peptides in...
Withdrawal of gluten, the culprit antigen, is the definite treatment for celiac disease. Weeks to months after gluten withdrawal from the diet before the clinical manifestations, histologi...
The current treatment for celiac disease is a strict 100% gluten free diet. Little is known about the best way to promote adherence to such a strict diet and how to maximize quality of lif...
The purpose of this protocol is to conduct a pilot study to investigate whether pancreatic enzyme supplementation will improve symptoms in individuals with celiac disease who suffer persis...
There are no therapeutic products on the market for celiac disease today. Current treatment is limited to gluten free foods and a gluten-free diet. The main purpose of this study is to t...
Celiac disease (CD) patients adhering to a gluten-free diet (GFD) are exposed frequently to low levels of gluten that contribute to symptoms and persistent intestinal histologic damage.
Celiac disease can be identified by a serologic test, for immunoglobulin A (IgA) against tissue transglutaminase (IgA-TTG), in a large proportion of children. However, the increased concentrations of ...
Celiac disease represents a problem in our society, not only because of its interest in terms of healthcare, but also because of its increasing prevalence in recent years and the impact it has on suff...
A clinically meaningful impairment of bone mass secondary to malabsorption is frequent in untreated celiac disease. In adult patients, a rigorous gluten-free diet (GFD) significantly improves, but doe...
Rate and determinants of non-adherence to a gluten-free diet and nutritional status assessment in children and adolescents with celiac disease in a tertiary Brazilian referral center: a cross-sectional and retrospective study.
Compliance with a gluten-free diet (GFD) is difficult at all ages but particularly for teenagers due to social, cultural, economic, and practical pressures. The multidisciplinary team responsible for ...
A diet which is devoid of GLUTENS from WHEAT; BARLEY; RYE; and other wheat-related varieties. The diet is designed to reduce exposure to those proteins in gluten that trigger INFLAMMATION of the small intestinal mucosa in patients with CELIAC DISEASE.
Simple protein, one of the prolamines, derived from the gluten of wheat, rye, etc. May be separated into 4 discrete electrophoretic fractions. It is the toxic factor associated with CELIAC DISEASE.
A malabsorption syndrome that is precipitated by the ingestion of GLUTEN-containing foods, such as wheat, rye, and barley. It is characterized by INFLAMMATION of the SMALL INTESTINE, loss of MICROVILLI structure, failed INTESTINAL ABSORPTION, and MALNUTRITION.
A malabsorption syndrome characterized by collagenous mucosal lesions of the SMALL INTESTINE, atrophy of MICROVILLI, severe malabsorption, diarrhea, and MALNUTRITION often refractory to a gluten-free diet.
Regular course of eating and drinking adopted by a person or animal. This does not include DIET THERAPY, a specific diet prescribed in the treatment of a disease.

Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Celiac disease is a digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food. People who have celiac disease cannot tolerate gluten, a protein in wheat, rye, and barley. Gluten is found mainly in foods but ...
