Abstract

The gluten-free diet (GFD) is a restrictive diet. In many cases, it must be permanent and strict, and it may be associated with both nutritional deficiencies and excesses, which can be prevented by following a healthy, natural Mediterranean GFD (Med-GFD). In this paper, we describe the importance of the Mediterranean diet, the correct intake of vitamins and minerals, and how they may play an important protective role against chronic or degenerative conditions. Herewith, we analyze different aspects that influence the ability to maintain a correct and balanced Med-GFD, which may contribute to the health status of patients, including a conscious use of gluten-free products to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Monitoring the Med-GFD remains a pivotal issue: to evaluate the presence of gluten peptides in urine, it could be important to introduce point-of-care testing, an efficient method for GFD self-monitoring (immunochromatographic technique), together with online nutritional questionnaires. Indeed, medical care via telemedicine can provide practical indications aimed at supporting patients and doctors. A natural Med-GFD can ensure the correct intake of nutrients and could be important for patients affected by gluten-related disorders, helping them to maintain a correct and healthy lifestyle.
