Adherence to a gluten-free diet is the key to successful treatment of Celiac Disease. If a strict diet is not followed for life, the risk of long-term associated complications increases.
According to different studies, gluten intake, whether voluntary or involuntary, is common among celiac patients. It is estimated that almost 90% of celiacs could eat gluten at least once a month. ​

Following a gluten-free diet day after day is difficult, but in any case, it is important to assess the degree of exposure to gluten in daily habits or changing environmental circumstances (for example, after eating out, at work or at school).
