Abstract

Celiac disease is an immune-mediated chronic bowel disease that causes atrophy of intestinal mucosa after consumption of gluten and related proteins in genetically predisposed individuals. The only treatment for celiac disease is the implementation of a life-long and strict gluten-free diet. Adaptation to the diet is essential to ensure that individuals who are especially diagnosed in childhood period are able to maintain a similar growth and development with their healthy peers. Strict gluten free diet which is supervised by a dietitian can lead to improve the adherence to diet and improve the clinical and serological findings in a short time. In this case report, the importance of gluten-free diet and adaptation of patient to the gluten-free diet were discussed.
