Learners will be educated on the challenges of a gluten free diet and promoting patient compliance.

The role of the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist in the care and management of a patient with Celiac Disease is described.  The learners will hear about the clinical manifestations of celiac disease and the best diagnostic strategies. We will discuss the difference between non-celiac gluten sensitivity and celiac disease. The learners will hear some ‘tips’ for diagnosing or disproving celiac
disease in patients who have already initiated a gluten free diet. Key management tips will be presented – in particular, the important caveats of a gluten free diet. We will discuss common diet pitfalls, misconceptions and controversies that surround a gluten free diet.
