    A new review questions estimates of celiac disease rates.
    A new systematic review by Italian researchers suggests that many studies showing rising or elevated rates of celiac disease are being over-estimated, mainly because tissue transglutaminase antibodies were the only diagnostic tool.

    New studies from the United States, Europe and other Countries around the world indicate that the commonness of celiac disease has dramatically increased  in the last decade; possibly as much as four-times the amount seen in the 1950's.

    Intestinal biopsy is considered the the gold standard for celiac disease testing. However, biopsy is an  invasive procedure and most people would be happy to avoid biopsy all together. Based solely on serology, a new diagnostic standard  has been proposed that would no longer require intestinal biopsy for celiac disease diagnosis in some patients.
