Reducing Your Risk of Celiac Disease

The more you know about your health, the better prepared you are to make informed healthcare decisions. Our health library gives you the information you need to take charge of your health.

There are no guidelines for preventing celiac disease. Ask your doctor about a screening test for you and your children if celiac disease runs in your family.
