I would like to present a gift to all the celiacs past.present and future! The latest edition of Cortlandt Forum has a wonderful eye opening article on celiac disease aimed at PRIMARY CARE DOCTORS !! It is on the front page, and is accessible to all. Just go on www.cortlandtforum.com and scroll down to the article. It is the Jan-Feb '09 edition. This is a free medical journal mailed to thousands of docs.
I have not been able to create a link, so maybe some kind member will do this.
I am very encouraged to read the medical literature specifically targeting the front line doctors in a good way.

That's great news. I especially liked this part:

“While celiac disease in its classic form, severe malabsorption, [is seen by] gasteroenterologists, most patients won't present with this but with a wide diversity of less well defined conditions.”

GREAT ARTICLE! Thanks for sharing! I'm also liking how it encourages doctors to look for the other symptoms than just malabsorption!
