About the Adult Celiac Disease Program

The Adult Celiac Disease Program at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago provides patients with access to a multidisciplinary program to diagnose, treat and manage celiac disease in adults. Our team of physicians includes specialists in the area of allergy and immunology, dermatology, endocrinology, gynecology, hematology, neurology and rheumatology.

At Rush, we recognized that individuals with celiac disease often face years of misdiagnosis and questions and frustrations with living a gluten-free lifestyle. The goal of our program is to treat patients with the disease and to limit the disruption to everyday life. For more information please see the Adult Celiac Disease Program brochure.
