Increased Gluten Avoidance Without a Celiac Diagnosis in the U. S.

Dr. Joseph Murray, a Gastroenterologist at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, reveals a surprising trend in his article appearing in the January 2017 issue of Mayo Clinic Proceedings, where a large portion of the population has independently begun avoiding gluten in their diet, making it extremely challenging for determining accurate trending in the state of celiac disease incidents. He also noted there has been an increase in the diagnosis of celiac disease in the past 6 years.
