Many celiacs remain undiagnosed

Celiac disease has symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal pain, weight loss, bloating, gas, joint or bone pain, anemia, muscle cramps, painful skin rash and fatigue. Some people have no symptoms which is why many remain undiagnosed. The Archives of Internal Medicine believe that 1 in every 133 American's has celiac's but only 1 in 4,700 are diagnosed.
