[IP] Celiac disease: a multisystem autoimmune disorder



I didn't mean that 10 percent of those with undiagnosed celiac had pot
bellies, rather that 10 percent of those with Type 1 diabetes have it!

Some info:
"Celiac disease (CD) is one of the most frequent autoimmune disorders
occurring in Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). The prevalence of CD in T1DM
varies from 3 to 16%, with a mean prevalence of 8%. The clinical
presentation of CD in T1DM is classified as symptomless in approximately
half of cases, but a more accurate analysis often discloses a wide array of
symptoms suggestive of CD. Both T1DM and CD show the same genetic
background"

Barbara, mum of Claire--dx'ed type 1 at age 2, celiac not till much later
due to incompetence of the doctors and/or lab technicians.
