Conclusion

Pharmacists play a pivotal role in educating patients about gluten-containing foods, medications, and supplements in order to help them adhere to a GFD and in ensuring that patients receive additional follow-up care, if needed. CD patients may not have gluten documented as an allergy in their medical chart, and if it is listed, it may not integrate with computerized interaction alerts. Therefore, pharmacists can identify products that may contain gluten by reviewing the contents of each product, contacting the manufacturer, and utilizing Internet resources.
