Celiac disease: Is it time for mass screening?
John Snyder Memorial Lecture - Celiac Disease: Is it Time for Mass Screening Yet?
Know someone with Celiac Disease? Celiac Disease is present in at least 1% of the general population, and the incidence is rising. Failure to diagnose and treat celiac disease can lead to long-term complications. It is therefore a major public health problem that should be considered for mass screening. It will be important to understand the risk factors for celiac disease, how to interpret testing, and the issues surround screening in the general population.
