As a leading center for celiac disease, Mayo Clinic has experts in treating complex cases.

A Mayo study found that as many as 10 to 20 percent of people with celiac disease will have ongoing or recurring symptoms, even with a gluten-free diet. At Mayo, people with celiac disease are monitored closely for intestinal healing. When diet alone isn't effective, Mayo doctors prescribe medications, including steroids and immune-system suppressors, to control intestinal swelling and malabsorption of nutrients.

At Mayo Clinic, doctors and dietitians work closely with you to help you learn to live gluten-free. Mayo dietitians help you find gluten-free substitutes and give advice on reading food labels and eating out safely. If you have dermatitis herpetiformis, your treatment team will include a dermatologist.
