The exact number of people who have
celiac disease is not known. Newer screening tests
have shown that many people with this condition have only mild symptoms or none
at all. Because of this and the fact that some doctors may not consider celiac
disease as a possible diagnosis when symptoms occur, the condition is now known
to be more common than originally believed. About 1 in 100 people in the United
States have celiac disease.1
