As more and more people in the US and abroad are diagnosed with celiac disease, manufacturers are producing increasing numbers of gluten-free products like flour and beer. Most gluten-free food items are clearly labeled as such.
Celiac disease is a manageable condition that can even promote a healthy diet — colorful vegetables and lean meats are still options. To fill in the gaps in a gluten-free lifestyle, consult with a registered dietitian.
People with celiac disease should be careful to follow their doctors' orders. Eating gluten with celiac disease can severely damage the small intestine and lead to other life-threatening illnesses.
