Trivia Question of the Month

QUESTION: In a 1939 study on 73 children with celiac disease, how many survived at least three years after being diagnosed?

ANSWER: 17 patients survived. Of 73 patients, 26 had already died at the time of the study and only 17 were still alive three years after diagnosis. At the time of the study, gluten had not yet been identified as the culprit in celiac disease, a discovery made by Willem-Karl Dicke shortly after World War II.

Although the gluten-free diet is not a perfect solution, it is quite literally a lifesaver for millions of people today. Read more about celiac disease and improving mortality rates.

Voices of Celiac: Melissa’s StoryMelissa and her family sit in front of a fire in Christmas pajamas

“I’m a physician assistant in family practice. My brother was diagnosed with celiac disease six months earlier, and I read on UpToDate [a clinician support website] that celiac disease has been linked to recurrent miscarriages. I started a gluten-free diet and my bloating, gas, and constipation went away. A couple months after starting this diet, I became pregnant again.

A biopsy of my small intestine was consistent with celiac disease. I did not really suspect celiac disease, but my husband asked me to try a gluten-free diet after the two miscarriages, and I relented, since my brother was recently diagnosed.”
