The incidence of autoimmune diseases in the general US population is 3.5%. In a 1999 study, Ventura, et.al. found that those diagnosed with celiac disease between 2-4 years of age had a 10.5% chance of developing an autoimmune disorder. Additional findings are outlined in the table below:

Age at diagnosis Chance of developing

autoimmune condition

4 – 12 yrs of age 16.7%

12 – 20 yrs of age 27%

Over 20 yrs of age 34%

 

 

"Type 1 Diabetes affects 3 million people; 6% (180,000) of those diagnosed also have celiac disease."
