Another reason to take celiac disease seriously.... 

Got this from the July 4th edition of the Celiac.com newsletter. I knew about the correlation, but didn't know the rate was so high:

Celiac Disease Quadruples Risk of Osteoporosis

I think it would have been useful if the article had said how to reduce the risk. At the very least, patients should get bone density tests every two years, more often if the doctor recommends it. And if there is thinning of the bones, treat it early.
