Immune Deficiencies and Celiac

Very interesting article that goes into how people with certain immune deficiencies may go with undiagnosed Celiac because the tests don’t always come out *normal positive* in people with certain problems/immune deficiencies. People with antibody defects or more extensive primary immune deficiencies may not have reliable results on celiac testing.

Since we have so many kids on the SDS list with antibody deficiencies, I thought I would post this! This is from the December-January 2009 I.G. living magazine
