Pediatric Celiac Disease Treatment

Offering Unmatched Treatment Options

Celiac disease must be carefully managed in adult patients, and can be an even more serious concern when it occurs in children. Children require an array of nutrients and vitamins for their healthy growth and development and celiac disease, if left undiagnosed or untreated, can be a major obstacle.

We understand the concerns and challenges families with pediatric celiac disease face and offer the treatment, counseling, and support needed to successfully live and thrive with this condition.

Understanding Pediatric Celiac Disease

Celiac disease has been often dismissed as a rare food allergy, but we have come to understand that is an autoimmune disease. Celiac disease indicates that villi in the patients' small intestine are vulnerable to gluten and that the destruction of those villi can prevent the patient from absorbing nutrients from the food they eat.

Celiac Disease Symptoms

Some common symptoms of celiac disease in children include:

  • Bloating
  • Gas pain
  • Loose, frequent stools
  • Fatigue
  • Skin rashes
  • Irritability
  • Lack of weight gain
  • Growth retardation

Celiac disease does not just impact the digestive system, but can affect other elements of a patient's health as well. That is why it is so critical that children who have celiac disease receive the careful attention and treatment they deserve.

Our doctors and nutritionists will work closely with families grappling with pediatric celiac disease to create meal plans and build a thorough understanding of how this disease can be managed.

We also understand that a child's diet could act as a barrier between them and other children and provide the help and support needed to minimize the impact of this disease on the child's social development.
