Celiac Disease Fact: Celiac Disease Tests are NOT Pass or Fail

This is a Celiac Disease Awareness Month Public Service Announcement.

Many people, including doctors, believe that the blood tests for celiac disease are pass/fail, and that if you have a negative result you can never in the future have a positive result. This is wrong. See how all the celiac disease tests work on our Diagnosis page.

Celiac Disease Fact: Celiac Disease Is An Undiagnosed Epidemic

This is a Celiac Disease Awareness Month Public Service Announcement.

Celiac disease affects 1% of the worldwide population. In the United States, it is estimated up to 17% of people with celiac disease are diagnosed. The rest are sick, but have no idea what is causing their problems.

Celiac Disease Fact: Diagnosis Can Take Years

This is a Celiac Disease Awareness Month public service announcement.

Pass it on! Celiac disease diagnosis can take years. Not because tests don’t exist, but rather because doctors do not consider celiac disease when looking at your symptoms. Frequently, a symptom of celiac disease will receive the diagnosis, leaving the underlying cause untreated. Request to be tested if your symptoms match any on this symptom list.
