The article presents a study conducted to investigate the percentage of energy obtained from major food groups by celiac patients. A strict gluten free diet (GFD) is the recognized treatment for patients diagnosed with celiac disease (CD). As food prohibited to patients with CD has a high proportion of complex carbohydrates, there may be excess consumption of fats and proteins and thus an increase in energy consumed. Over an 8 week period, oil patients seen in a weekly, specialist gastroenterology clinic in a large Great Britain teaching hospital, with histologically confirmed CD and on a strict GFD were invited to complete prospectively a validated 3 day food diary.
