Celiac Disease Treatment: Medicine

Overview

In severe cases of celiac disease, corticosteroids (usually Prednisone) are used to help control intestinal inflammation.

People with severe or long-standing celiac disease may also need medically supervised replacement of vitamins and minerals until their intestines recover sufficiently to absorb these nutrients. Supplemental nutrition may be needed intravenously for a short period of time to restore your nutritional deficiencies and help prevent more serious complications from celiac disease. This is called parenteral nutrition.
