Diagnosis and treatment of Celiac Disease
Sheryl Pfeil, MD, a gastroenterologist at Ohio State, explains the symptoms of true Celiac disease and its similarity to simple gluten sensitivity or other disorders. Definitive diagnosis may require bloodwork and evaluation or sampling of the digestive tract during an endoscopy. If confirmed, patients with true Celiac disease can eliminate symptoms and effectively “cure” themselves with strict adherence to a gluten-free, or wheat-free diet.
