Celiac And Genetics

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I know that celiac disease is genetic, but I'm wondering what the statistics are for passing it on to your children. My daughter is 4.5 and, as far as I can tell, is not exhibiting symptoms at this point.

Also, my symptoms did not present themselves until my early 20's. Does that have any bearing on the age my daughter may come into it?

Thanks!

Actually the other fact sheets are pretty interesting, too. http://www.celiacdis....net/factsheets
