What are the practical aspects of celiac disease?

A gluten-free diet will be a big change in your life. You have to rethink your eating habits, including what you buy for lunch, what you eat at parties, or what you snack on. When you go grocery shopping, be sure to read the ingredient label carefully.

A dietitian, a healthcare professional who specializes in food and nutrition, can help you with the gluten-free diet. There are also support groups that can help patients who have just been diagnosed with celiac disease.
