"...In a study of more than 2500 adults, the researchers combined traditional antibody testing (measuring the immune response to gluten) with an assessment of specific genetic risk markers. They found that more than half of the subjects had genetic risk factors for developing celiac disease. This newly developed testing strategy also showed that celiac disease potentially affected at least one in 60 women and one in 80 men. The research is published online today in the journal BMC Medicine"

 

 

I keep thinking of just how many MORE people are missed by our medical community than we previously thought, if these numbers are accurate.

Thanks, it doesn't make me feel any better about some of my children testing negative, though.  You see I am 2 DQ2 and 2 DQ8 and all of my children (but 1) are small.  I didn't have the classic symptoms, so why should they?
