Our dietitians are happy to answer your general nutrition questions about celiac disease. Please submit questions that are applicable to a general gluten-free audience. We regret that personal clinical questions (medical history, labs, supplements, etc.) cannot be addressed.

Please note: Many things vary by country, and responses are based on the US only. International inquiries should be submitted to the relevant local celiac association for that country. Click here for a listing of celiac support organizations in other countries.

Time allowing, every effort will be made to answer all submitted questions. Some questions may be chosen to be anonymously included in the e-newsletter also posted on this website and/or the Gluten-Free Nation print magazine.
