Thanks to the pioneering work of the Dutch pediatrician Willem Dicke in the 1950s, the gluten-free diet (GFD) has become the standard therapy for celiac disease (CeD), one of the most common life-long disorders. Through this simple and straightforward dietary treatment, thousands of lives have been saved and millions of patients have been able to live healthy lives. Recently, it has been discovered that the GFD can treat other gluten-related disorders (GRD), such as gluten ataxia and non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Nevertheless, the GFD has limitations, such as a less-than-optimal content of nutrients such as fiber and calcium, the risk of gluten contamination in many commercial foods, and a significant impact on the psycho-social aspects of daily life. As such, alternative/complementary dietary and non-dietary treatments are currently under scrutiny.
The aim of this Special Issue of Nutrients is to highlight recent advances in the gluten-free diet in CeD and other GRDs from a broad perspective, e.g., including new methods for gluten analysis, the clinical monitoring of adherence to the GFD, psycho-social quality of life in patients treated with the GFD, complementary/alternative treatments including gluten-free wheat flours, probiotics and drugs.
