Why Choose Us: Celiac Disease Care at Stanford Health Care
Affecting one out of every 133 people in the United States, celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder in which your body attacks healthy tissue in the small intestine. This condition causes symptoms that can affect your quality of life.
Using a team approach, our celiac disease experts work alongside pathologists, endocrinologists and dedicated gastrointestinal dieticians from Nutrition Services to get to the source of your symptoms. We use this information to develop customized treatment plans that take into account your unique needs and preferences.
Highlights of our program include:
Accurate diagnosis: We pride ourselves in delivering an accurate diagnosis for each patient. In cases where test results are not straightforward, our celiac disease experts personally examine your tissue samples. This level of expertise is unique to Stanford.
Nutrition support: We are one of few programs in the country with a registered dietician dedicated to caring for patients with gastrointestinal disorders. We develop customized nutrition plans, such as a gluten free diet, that include your favorite foods and accommodate your busy lifestyle.
Please confirm the location of your appointment as our doctors and staff see patients at multiple locations.
