Supplements Know-How for Celiacs

Do you have celiac disease and are you confused about which nutrient supplements you should take? The first thing to understand is supplement needs vary depending on how much damage has been done from the celiac disease and whether other health problems have developed. Eliminating gluten from the diet is the first and most important step, but after that, then what? It’s important to work with a doctor who specializes in celiac disease and can order tests to determine if you have secondary health conditions brought on from the celiac disease and, if you do, exactly what conditions they are and what levels of nutrients you have.

For more specifics about the most common conditions that accompany celiac disease and some nutrient connections to know about for each condition, check out the Natural Food Merchandiser story, “Supplements Offer Succor for Celiacs,” for which I was interviewed.
