Thanks Karen. I have been on this site for a year but missed this one. I thought it wasn an interesting thought, but I guess with all the forums and all the people on this site it doesn't surprise me this has been covered already. It's like an episode of South Park where every idea that they came up with has already been done on the Simpsons because after hundreds of episodes of the Simpsons almost everything has been covered.
But this place can be a revolving door. Maybe some who didn't post preciously would like to add on?
I saw something that said that the biggest group of Celiacs are from North African descent. It was a reputable source but, I can't find it again! Not sure even what they were counting as N. African descent.

I'm Canadian with a German and Ukranian/Polish background. My family all came over in the early 1900's. I haven't had genetic testing done but there is celiac on the Ukranian/Polish side of the family.

Just that they do not get tested because doctors only suspect celiac with northern Europeans.
By the way, there is much celiac in Austria, which is not northern european.
