A recent Finnish study of 3,654 kids, ages 7 to 16, found that 1 in 99 children have Celiac Disease. The Mayo Clinic has recently reported that the incidence is much higher than previously thought. These results support the University of Maryland's earlier conclusion that 1 in 150 Americans have Celiac Disease. Hopefully, doctors will start to take the disease seriously.
