In the Celiac Disease Program at Boston Children’s Hospital, our work focuses on the diagnosis, monitoring and management of celiac disease. Celiac disease is different from most other diseases because the only available treatment is lifelong adherence to a strict gluten-free diet. We are especially interested in the natural history of celiac disease and what happens after the diagnosis and the recommendation to follow a gluten-free diet. We have a variety of projects looking at the epidemiology of celiac disease in children. These include studies of the relationship between celiac disease and other autoimmune disorders, and studies of complications of celiac disease, such as non-responsive celiac disease which occurs when patients do not respond as expected to a gluten-free diet.
