Just Diagnosed With Celiac? You May Experience These Complications

By February 27, 2014

Follow me on:

If you've just been diagnosed with celiac disease, you may be feeling overwhelmed just trying to learn the basics of the gluten-free diet and what foods are gluten-free.

However, in the midst of all this, you'll need to keep an eye out for several potential medical complications that frequently occur when you've had undiagnosed celiac for some time. Malnutrition heads the list, unsurprisingly, but you may not be aware of some others.

I've pulled together a list of these complications in my article Just Diagnosed with Celiac Disease - Possible Complications. You may want to discuss these with your doctor, and see if you should be tested for them.
