Celiac disease is a chronic condition that requires daily health management of a strict lifelong gluten-free diet. Adherence and self-management among adolescents can be challenging. Understanding the relationships between the skills involved in managing the diet, while participating in food-related activities, may assist in promoting adherence and self-management. This approach may contribute to developing occupational-based interventions in an emerging field of chronic health management.
