Diet for Celiac Disease

Final Thoughts

Following a gluten-free diet will stop symptoms of celiac disease, heal existing intestinal damage, and prevent further damage for most people with the illness. Improvements usually begin within days of eliminating gluten from one's diet. The small intestine usually heals completely within months in children and young adults, and within two years for older adults.
 
Finally, instead of dwelling on the foods that you cannot eat, think of all the food you can eat -- especially the healthy alternatives. There is a wide variety of foods you can enjoy.
