I have a young adult child with celiac disease. I would like to know if the disease actually shortens the life, if managed well.

thank you

Everything I have seen says that if the Celiac is controlled with the gluten free diet, the life span is the same as anyone else. The shorter lifespans seem to be in people who were not following the gluten-free diet.

As Karen and Lisa have said, the increased risk is associated with untreated celiac disease. For those of us who are following the gluten-free diet and whose body has healed, life expectancy is the same as for those without celiac disease.
