Celiac Disease Clinic

Vanderbilt’s Celiac Disease Clinic is the only dedicated celiac clinic in the Southeast. Treating celiac disease involves much more than avoiding gluten. We can help you manage the many aspects of this chronic illness. Celiac disease, sometimes called celiac sprue, can affect your body’s nutrition, the health of your bones, your risk for other autoimmune diseases, your mental health and more. We offer comprehensive care to patients with celiac disease.
