Celiac Exposure

2 posts in this topic

I have a dumb question here... Why don't we work on insurance companies to get the word out about celiac. If we could somehow get them to take a look at the myriad of health problems (insurance claims) that are caused by undiagnosed celiac disease wouldn't they maybe begin pushing for celiac testing??? It seems to me that they would save a TON of money if more people were diagnosed earlier. How many millions in unneccessary antidepressants, antispasmodics, antinausea, anti-etc... do they spend every year on undiagnosed celiacs? If these people knew what was wrong with them and followed the gluten-free diet, they would probably significantly lower their managed health care needs, right? I could be dillusional (slight state of brain fog today), so please forgive me if I'm just being an idiot here. It's just a thought.
