Pancreas and Celiac Disease Link?

I am a chronic lyme survivor and have celiac disease. I founded S.L.A.M. (Sturbridge Lyme Awareness of Massachusetts) and "Ribbons Across America". I look forward to bringing awareness to the link between lyme and celiac.
I am in the process of learning if the celiac or Lyme Disease was the biggest culprit in damage to my Pancreas. I'll keep you posted if anyone wants to know. My sons have been dianosed with Lyme and with the information on this site I've learned my youngest (16) may also have celiac disease. Why it's taken his whole life for doctors to get it right I will never know but we're here now and gluten free looks to be in his future too.
The article here relating celiac with pancreas issues is very interesting to me and is something I must look into for my son's welfare. Thanks for information about what to look for in juvenile's!
