In Italy, where celiac disease is common, all children are screened by age 6 so that even asymptomatic disease is caught early. In addition, Italians of any age are tested for the disease as soon as they show symptoms.

In the United States, the time between the first symptoms and diagnosis averages about 10 years.

Had digestive issues, severe reflux, dysphagia, and bloating on and off for two years. Went to GI, got endoscopy and blood test which confirmed celiac. Been gluten free for about 3 weeks now; feel great although my body is still adjusting. Additionally I was diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esop...
