There's not just one. Untreated celiac disease causes lower absorption of fat soluble vitamins as well as b vitamins. I really wish my doctor had told me that and suggested I take supplements, especially once I healed up a little (enough to potentially absorb the extra nutrients from the supplements).
Personally, I now take vitamin D, eat liver regularly for vitamin A, vitamin K2, and a complex of b vitamins, with a special emphasis on folate and methylcobalamin.

I take a multivitamin but if you were to choose one single thing to supplement it should be iron. Iron is difficult to absorb anyway, women are more likely to be deficient in it, and women are more likely to have celiac. And anemia is a horrible feeling, if you've never experienced it.

I only like to take natural things at the moment. Every morning I drink ginger that has been boiled the day before. I am finding this really soothing on my gut.

I personally take Calcium with Vitamin D as well as Green Pastures Fermented Cod-Liver Oil. When all of my labs came back, I was very low in Iron but not deficient, which was surprising to me. So I currently only take Calcium (Garden of Life, only - the most bioavailable) as well as the Green Pastures FCLO and a multi... I only take them Mon-Fri... saves a few bucks.

lol in my experience there wasn't one, there were quite a few. I couldn't even pick just one cause I was deficient and malabsorbing so many things. Amino acids, minerals, fats, vitamins, etc.
mangesium, iron, possibly calcium. When you have celiac I believe the first part of the intestine gets damaged first, and that is where all your minerals are absorbed. Minerals will be a big concern when you first find out you're celiac.
And yes anemia is fucking horrible, I had a hemoglobin of 9 when mine was discovered. I was the walking dead.

Celiac disease has no cure, but you can effectively manage the disease through changing your diet.
Changes to your diet to avoid gluten To manage the disease and prevent complications, it's crucial that you avoid all foods that contain gluten, including:
