Update on European Guidelines on Celiac Disease & Other Gluten-Related Disorders

August, 2019

 

Updated recommendations on the management of celiac disease (CD) and gluten-related disorders were recently published by the European Society for the Study of Coeliac Disease. A multi-national group of experts including both pediatric and adult gastroenterologists conducted a review of current guidelines, and a literature review of relevant articles published from 1990 to the present. The authors note that new guidelines were needed because previously available international guidelines were outdated and much new data has become available for consideration and incorporation.

 

Note: Decisions regarding care and follow-up should always be made on an individual basis in consultation with your personal healthcare team.
