Is Celiac Acquired or Hereditary?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My stomach usually bloats when I take anything made with wheat. Beer has also become quite problematic of late. I think I have celiac, but i'm not yet sure. So I need to know if celiac is acquired of hereditary.

Yes, celiac disease is genetic, but only a few go on to develop it.  It can develop at anytime in your life.  Here is more information about a simple blood test (University of Chicago's celiac website):

This is critical....you must be consuming gluten daily for any celiac test to be accurate.  So, do not give up gluten yet.   

I wish you well.
