A 51-year-old male asked about a member:

Can inflammation from celiac disease be treated with steroids? is that customary or is altering diet only treatment?

Only diet: The main treatment for celiac disease is to avoid eating any foods that contain gluten. Even the smallest amount of gluten is harmful and can cause symptoms in some people. No steroid.
