One would expect that higher quality and more available blood tests and the fact that diagnosis of Celiac disease has increased dramatically would significantly drop death rates. Hypothetically an earlier start to the gluten-free diet should prevent other health risks associated with celiac disease from developing. Right?
Wrong. A study in the American Journal of Gastroenterology found that people diagnosed with celiac disease since 2000 have a similar mortality risk as those diagnosed earlier despite the introduction of serological tests. Furthermore, Dr. Matthew J Grainge, a researcher at the University of Nottingham found that people with celiac disease have a 37% increase in all-cause mortality compared with the general population.
