Treatment

treatmentAt present, the only effective treatment for CD is lifelong adherence to a strict gluten-free diet (GFD)5.

Patients must therefore be strong-willed and responsibly choose gluten-free foods, avoiding all possible sources of contamination. Not surprisingly, a high proportion of patients involuntarily or consciously consume gluten6, given that it is found in more than 50% of solid food products, as an ingredient or additive.

Currently, there is no pharmacological treatment for patients, although several clinical trials are being conducted with the aim of developing new therapies5.
