Most celiac goes undiagnosed

“According to the Celiac Disease Foundation, the disease affects one of 133 people, yet some statistics show as many as 97% of people are undiagnosed and it takes an about nine years for the average patient to receive a diagnosis of celiac disease. … ‘It occurs in 1% of the population in this country, and less than 5% of this 1% are diagnosed,’ says Peter Green, M.D., director of the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University.” — WebMD (http://r.smartbrief.com/resp/fQrWCqtCxLCGcmugCidKlOBVetNK)
