Study calls for more effective screening process for Celiac disease in children

McMaster University

A preliminary diagnosis of Celiac disease in a child can be a stressful life event for an entire family. In addition to the prospect of following a completely gluten-free diet for life, a child must also face a series of tests – some invasive – to confirm the disease. While this should be a seamless and effective process, a recent study from McMaster University, The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) and William Osler Health System (Osler) shows this is not always the case. An additional, costly blood test is routinely prescribed and performed as part of the screening process and results of the study show it rarely predicts the disease.
