Background: Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease triggered by presence of gluten in food items, which precipitates specific symptoms of the disease. Objectives: To find novel concepts on diets in celiac disease, we summarized information from literature sources which needs further translational researches. Results: Though there are abundant literature on celiac disease about its etiology, signs and symptoms and diet models, there is no specific treatment and management protocol other than gluten-free food. Conclusion: A sincere discourse on the critical issue of dietary advice in celiac disease is very much required for primary health care providers, to be conversant with clinical features and outcomes with alternate treatment modalities.
