Prevention of celiac disease

Given the growing rise in prevalence of celiac disease, there is interest in trying to prevent the development of celiac disease. There are studies that suggest breast-feeding and delayed introduction of gluten into the diet may reduce the risk of developing celiac disease [82, 83]. However, while these observations make sense, there are other reports that suggest early introduction of gluten in a defined period of time in infancy may also reduce the risk [84, 85]. There is also interest in whether dietary changes such as increased consumption of strains of wheat that contain greater amounts of potentially immunogenic peptides could play a role in the apparent increase in celiac disease [86]. Further studies are needed to answer these questions.
