Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease triggered by presence of gluten in diet which precipitates symptomsof celiac disease causing malnutrition. A narrative review on diet in Celiac diseasewas taken up, which was very much required for health care providers in day-to-day clinical care. Thirty six research studies were identified from 105 potentially relevant articles. Studies were selected on: firstly; all protocols of celiac disease among published literature were meticulously searched. Secondly, nutritional considerations about celiac disease were explored from relevant articles, Thirdly, published reports from apex bodies of global importance like World Health Organization (WHO), Centre for disease control (CDC), Atlanta USA and others were given due weightage for their multi-authored authenticity. In this review the correlation between celiac disease and gluten free diets have been discussed with prognosis, complications, and clinical outcomes of patients reported by different research groups. In spite of substantial growth in healthcare, no researchers have yet suggested any other management except elimination of gluten from diet of celiac disease cases. Though there is abundant literature on celiac disease about its aetiology, signs and symptoms and diet models, there is no specific treatment and management protocol available, other than gluten free diet. Researchers have to do further studies to suggest treatment modalities.
