Celiac disease affects the small intestines and the symptoms are usually brought about by the ingestion of gluten.
The presentation of celiac disease may be varied with a wide range of severity of the symptoms. This makes diagnosis a challenge based on symptoms alone. Research suggests that diagnosis usually takes around 10 years after the appearance of first symptoms.
For example, reports suggest that celiac disease may be detected in adults presenting with iron-deficiency anaemia and in adults presenting with low bone-mineral density.
The prevalence of celiac disease in people with iron-deficiency anaemia ranges from 2.3 to 15% and the prevalence of celiac disease in people with low bone mineral density ranges from 0 to 3%.
