Gluten Free diet: The treatment for celiac disease is to avoid all foods containing gluten. Gluten is most commonly found in barley, wheat and rye grains. You must be a very careful label reader and check for these items in the ingredients list. There are many more gluten free options available in the supermarkets now. If you have been diagnosed with celiac this is a lifelong diet plan.
