Disordered Eating and Celiac Disease

Francie KelleyLeave a Comment

Disordered eating can come in lots of different forms and affect people with celiac disease in lots of different way. For example, a person living with celiac disease could be misdiagnosed with an eating disorder OR develop one as a result of poor management of the gluten-free diet. Recent research has also shown that women with celiac disease could be twice as likely as the general population to develop anorexia.

Join Dr. Rose-Marie Satherley from the University of Surrey and Sharon Weston, MS, RD, LDN from Boston Children's Hospital to hear about different types of disordered eating, the latest research, and how to support someone with celiac disease struggling to manage these conditions.
