Celiac Mentioned In Reader's Digest!

In the October issue of Reader's Digest, on page 143, at the end of an article called "Misdiagnosed" there is a small mention of celiac. It says:

"Celiac Disease - In adults it takes an average of 11 years to diagnose celiac disease, a genetic autoimmune disorder in which sufferers can't digest gluten, a protein in wheat, rye and barley. An estimated two million Americans have the disease but an astounding 97 percent go undiagnosed."

I think that's pretty well said for two sentences!

Yay! That is great! I have read that the latest statistic is down to 4 years, but I am more likely to believe the 11 years...considering so many are not diagnosed and are silent Celiacs.

Thanks for posting!

thats so exciting! :) the other day i was working out and was flipping thru the sept. issue of women's health magazine. there was an article about things that go undiagnosed too and there was a little paragraph about celiac. i about fell off the elliptical :D haha

i'm so glad that is seems like there is becoming more awareness...but maybe it's just that i'm more observant of it now...? :blink:

I saw a brief mention of celiac in Self a few months back, too. It was a small paragraph in a "Top 10 Misdiagnoses" article.
