Reducing Your Risk of Celiac Disease

There are no current guidelines for preventing celiac disease.

However, if your infant is at increased risk for celiac disease, talk to his or her doctor about the best time to introduce foods containing gluten.

Ask your doctor about a screening test for you and your children if celiac disease runs in your family.
