Is traveling abroad a risk factor for celiac disease? Samuel Gee, from back in 1888, made an interesting statement about this below.
Samuel Gee - Wikipedia
In 1888, Gee published the first complete modern description of the clinical picture of coeliac disease, and theorised on the importance of diet in its control.
Gee acknowledges earlier findings and terms for the disease and adopts the same term as Aretaeus. Unlike Aretaeus, he includes children in the scope of the affection, particularly those between one and five years old. He notes that most adults with the cÅ“liac affection have been abroad.
I am interested in your thoughts on this.
