Boston Children’s Hospital’s Celiac Disease Program and Support Group helps hundreds of member families cope with celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder that leads to damage of the small intestine and requires children to follow a strict, gluten-free diet.
We strive to make life easier for families living with celiac disease. Our Celiac Program includes online resources and take-home DVDs. Boston Children’s Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition has also released the instructive comic book, “Amy Goes Gluten-Free: A Young Person’s Guide to Celiac Disease.”
The experts in our Celiac Disease Program are some of the best in the country when it comes to diagnosing and helping families manage celiac disease with a gluten-free lifestyle. We also have a vibrant and active Celiac Disease support group with more than 400 member families.
