Resumen

Background. Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is highly contagious and dynamic confinement measures have shown to significantly reduce the number of infections, however, they can alter the availability of food, affecting adherence to a gluten-free diet (GFD) and quality of life (QoL) in celiac disease (CD). The objective of this study was to evaluate the limiting factors, adherence to a gluten-free diet and quality of life in people with celiac disease in a COVID-19 pandemic period. Methods. On-line surveys were applied regarding adherence to the GFD, CV, and factors that have generated difficulty in carrying out a GFD in this setting. Results. 216 surveys of celiac patients over 15 years of age were analyzed, of which 91% were women with an average age of 36 + 10.7 years and with 5.8 + 6.0 years of the disease. 56.48% had excellent adherence to the GFD and 43.52% had a good QoL. The high cost of gluten-free foods was the question with the highest response percentage, associated with regular and poor adherence to the GFD (p-value = 0.001) and with poor QoL (p-value = 0.023). Conclusion. In a COVID-19 pandemic period, the cost of food is associated with regular and poor adherence to the GFD and with poor QoL.
