The earlier you know, the sooner you can do something about it.... 

This comes from the January 23rd Celiac.com newsletter. It's a similar theme as my last post, but still interesting:

Should We Have Mass Screening for Celiac Disease?

It has got to be frustrating as hell to have a child with undiagnosed celiac disease, wondering if all those "stomach aches" are something serious or just a kid trying to get out of going to school. And then your child begins to show signs of malnutrition, or has behavioral problems or some of the other more alarming symptoms that might accompany the stomach discomfort. Pediatricians are probably a lot more on the ball than they were when I was a kid, but some have been slow to come around to the idea of testing for celiac disease.
