The Pediatric Celiac Disease Program provides specialized care for patients with celiac disease, an inherited autoimmune disorder that disrupts digestion in the small intestine. We also have expertise in diagnosing and managing other gluten-related conditions, including wheat allergy and non-celiac gluten sensitivity.

Treatment for celiac disease centers on adhering to a gluten-free diet. Our team of doctors, nurse practitioners, dietitians and social workers offers education and support for kids and families as they learn to navigate celiac disease and its dietary constraints. We take a personalized, age-appropriate approach, helping patients face new situations with confidence, whether they are starting preschool or heading to college.

Our patients can also access care for conditions that may be related to celiac disease, including thyroid disease; headaches; and liver, joint or skin problems. We work closely with our colleagues in endocrinology, neurology, rheumatology, dermatology, psychiatry and psychology, and hepatology (liver care) to provide specialized support. Our program also conducts research on the best ways to diagnose, manage and monitor celiac disease, with the goal of improving treatment options and long-term outcomes.

Appointments are available in person or via Zoom (video visits). For your first visit, please be prepared to share results of any recent lab tests and a general dietary history. For virtual appointments, please also be ready to give recent height and weight measurements.
