Anti-tTG blood test shows 1 in 80 celiac in population: from Peter on 2002-07-08

The largest investigation into the prevalence of undiagnosed celiac condition in the general population is taking place in Europe with 4 million euros of EC funding.

So far over 18000 blood samples have been tested and the results suggest that 1 in every 80 people may show some adverse reaction to gluten, and so benefit from a gluten-free diet.
This figure is very much greater than the number at present medically diagnosed, so there are a lot of people out there suffering unnecessarily from the effects of gluten in their diet.

Do you have any more details of the study - where did you find the information. I couldn't find any results. Thanks

I would like to see the study also. How did they decide there was a gluten reaction? What tests were given?
