Abstract

Patients with celiac disease (CD) are increasingly interconnected through social media, exchanging patient
experiences and health-tracking information between individuals through various web-based platforms. Social
media represents potentially unique communication interface between gastroenterologists and active social media
users – especially young adults and adolescents with celiac disease-regarding adherence to the strict gluten-free
diet, gastrointestinal symptoms, and meaningful discussion about disease management. Yet, various social media
platforms may be underutilized for research purposes to collect patient-reported outcomes data. In this commentary,
we summarize the scientific rationale and potential for future growth of social media in patient-reported outcomes
research, focusing on college freshmen with celiac disease as a case study and provide overview of the methodological
approach. Finally, we discuss how social media may impact patient care in the future through increasing mobile
technology use.
