Some may feel celiac in their bones.... 

Got this from a March 2011 (yep, trying to catch up on that e-mail box) edition of the Celiac.com newsletter. This is something I knew about, but might not be widely reported:

Weaker Bones, More Fractures for Celiac Disease Patients

If you have celiac, diabetes, or other risk factors for osteoporosis, ask your doctor if you need a bone density test. BTW, high-dose prednisone can also thin bones. I'm getting tested every two years, and so far, I'm pleased to report that my bones are in great shape.
