CPE Level 2
This continuing education course reviews the history of the gluten-free (GF) diet, nutrient deficiencies commonly associated with celiac disease (CD) and nonceliac gluten sensitivity (NCGS), and nutrient fortification in the United States. Also discussed are clinical manifestations of CD and NCGS by body systems and sources of nutrients that can be used to replace those often insufficient in the GF diet.
After completing this continuing education course, nutrition professionals should be able to:
1. Explain the history of celiac disease (CD) and the evolution of treatment.
2. Categorize nutrient deficiencies commonly associated with CD.
3. Elucidate the relevance of nutrient enrichment and fortification in the context of the gluten-free (GF) diet and associated deficiencies.
4. Enumerate by body system the clinical manifestations of CD and nonceliac gluten sensitivity.
5. Plan appropriate food sources to replace nutrients commonly insufficient in the GF diet.
