I wish there was a different answer for many patients with true celiac disease (whether they have symptoms or not). For now, a strict gluten-free diet for life is the only treatment option. Below I discuss future treatment options that may become available, but still only considered within research frameworks at this time. Mylea Charvat asks: With celiac will I ever be able to eat regular pastas and breads again? Is there any research into medication to help those diagnosed with celiac disease digest and tolerate gluten? I wish there were better news for the here and now. Unfortunately, as you know, a strict gluten-free diet a for now a is the only treatment option for celiac disease. Regular pastas and breads are definitely hard to give up, especially if you really enjoy them. With that said, many laboratories around the world are evaluating different strategies to offer celiac patients more therapeutic options in the future. One hopeful approach is aglutenase therapya where an enzyme could break down the gluten and render it non-toxic. Other working ideas include: blocking the immune reaction (i.e., auto-antibodies) through an ingestible polymeric resin, adesensitizinga the bodyas immune system response to gluten via serial protein-based injections and developing a celiac vaccine. Looking ahead, it is conceivable that celiac patients will one day be able to eat gluten-containing foods, but definitive alternatives to gluten avoidance are not yet ready for general consumer use. Antonio Ruben Murcia Prieto asks: What aboutAoats for celiac disease? The topic of oats is very much an evolving discussion among celiac experts. Generally, oats are an excellent source of good nutrients, including vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and dietary fiber, such as soluble beta-glucans. They are high in protein, and are even thought to help maintain steady insulin levels.
