Celiac disease affects 1 in 100 people worldwide
Canadian researcher Charlene Elliott, a professor at the University of Calgary explained more about celiac disease among children by saying that celiac disease has a genetic component. Approximately 1 in 100 people worldwide have celiac disease, and celiac disease is one of the most common autoimmune diseases in children.
The only medically approved treatment for celiac disease is a gluten-free diet. Once you begin your gluten-free diet, your child should feel much better and the symptoms will go away. A gluten-free diet also promotes gut healing and improves almost all celiac-related conditions.
