  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    Celiac disease or allergy to wheat & wheat products is a genetic disease. It is not curable. Only treatment option is avoidance of gluten diet. Wheat, barley and rye are the natural gluten containing food. Oats also treated as gluten food unless labelled as gluten free on packaging.
    So please consult a dietitian to discuss about various food which cannot be given. Food not containing the above cereals can be taken. All the fruits, vegetables, nuts, milk products and pulses and eggs are not gluten containing food.
    Medications especially protein supplements and multivitamins also contains gluten so if they are advised by doctors then you should only take which are labelled gluten free.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back with follow-up questions.
