What are the signs and symptoms of celiac disease?
The symptoms for celiac disease are different for different people. Some children may grow poorly and can be very sick with vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain and irritability. Other children, particularly those being screened due to a genetic risk, may have minimal symptoms and would likely not have gone to the doctor. Others may have progressive bone thinning or iron deficiency that may not become apparent until adulthood.
