Celiac Disease & Gluten Intolerance Research
Currently, the best way to assess whether patients with celiac disease are actually maintaining a strict gluten-free diet is to have trained experts conduct a dietary interview. These interviews can vary in complexity, depending on the nature and number of the questions, and on the amount of medical expertise required to score the responses.
Some studies suggest that people with celiac disease may have high levels of resistance to the HBV vaccine, compared to the general population. A team of researchers recently took a look at the issue of HBV vaccine reliability in people with celiac disease.
A British study reports that 40% of celiacs are unhappy on the gluten free diet and would welcome treatment options, but do not use alternative therapies more than the control population.
