Every day, researchers are working to get a better understanding of celiac disease and its various presentations. Ongoing research is also exploring potential drug treatments for celiac disease.
A clinical research study called the CeliAction Study is researching if an investigational drug – which would be taken as a supplement to an attempted gluten-free diet – improves any symptoms of celiac disease.
People with celiac are needed to participate in a nationwide survey.
The onset and severity of symptoms varies in patients post-diagnosis and can depend on the level of their adherence to the gluten-free diet.
Many people with celiac disease have significant disease-associated symptoms and intestinal damage despite trying to adhere to a strict gluten-free diet.
