Gluten free diet is the only available treatment for celiac disease CeD. Patients with CeD who do not adhere to a strict gluten-free diet GFD have been found to have complications involving nutritional deficiencies, increased risk of bone fractures, increased risk of mortality, and certain types of cancers. Complete removal of gluten from the diet in a patient with CeD often results in symptomatic, serologic, and histologic remission. However, strict compliance with the diet is challenging. Long-term follow-up care is needed to assure treatment compliance and positive health outcomes. Monitoring celiac specific serology, nutrient deficiencies, bone mineral density, and assessment of GFD compliance have been recommended in clinical practice. However, there is no consensus on which specific tests and how often they should be performed during the follow up.
BMC Gastroenterol. The patients or their guardians are required to have extensive knowledge about CD and the GFD requirements. Backcround Celiac disease CeD is a chronic systemic, immune-mediated condition precipitated by exposure to dietary gluten in genetically pre-disposed individuals 1. Introduction: the GFD challenge. Similarly, Ciacci et al. Principle 5: specific self-efficacy for each phase Self-efficacy expectation is necessary along all this adherence processes to a GFD but this expectation is slightly different depending on each phase. In this last session, dieticians will evaluate again self-efficacy expectations, adherence and quality of life as well as the programme as a whole. Coeliac disease and the gluten-free diet: A review of the burdens; factors associated with adherence and impact on health-related quality of live, with specific focus on adolescence. Develop self-efficacy in specific settings such as eating at home, at work, eating out, shopping and when travelling. The incidence of non-intentional failure to follow GFD has significantly decreased over years, which indicates better dietary care.

They also receive stronger day-to-day support meetings, help in obtaining GFD products, partially reimbursed youth camps [ 7, 10, 14 ]. By the troublesome use of GFD we mean a number of difficulties encountered by a patient in everyday life. The difficulty for a correct adherence lies mainly on how strict the diet needs to be as we understand that it needs to be very strict in the case of CD and wheat allergy, and it could be more relaxed in the case of NCGS. The messages, therefore, must be tailored to suit the chronic patient. Our future studies will seek to confirm the validity of these associations and develop evidence-based interventions to facilitate GFD adherence in the growing number of individuals diagnosed with CD. It is free of charge for patients with CD belonging to the Coeliac Society. Principle of evaluation Professionals will carry out several evaluations throughout the programme: Initial evaluation Evaluation of the diet.
