They've awarded Shanna Coburn, PhD an Early Career Grant. Coburn's research will investigate the effect that using at-home tests for gluten in urine has on the emotions and behavior of teenagers with celiac disease when the teens and their parents are also part of an internet-based support program. “Teens with celiac disease have an increased risk of poor quality of life and emotional distress as well as poorer adherence to the gluten-free diet as they enter this vulnerable stage of life,” says Coburn.

  • 1076. Italy Will Begin Testing All Kids for Celiac

    Good news out of Italy! They are starting a program to test everyone from 1-17 for celiac disease from 2024 through 2026. According to the latest estimates from the Italian Society of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Pediatric Nutrition (Sigenp), one in 60 children in Italy is affected, but 6 out of 10 remain undiagnosed. This is one of the highest figures in the world. It is therefore necessary to increase diagnoses, specialists warn, to prevent long-term consequences.Although it's only in Italy, this is a win for the entire gluten free community. Hopefully results from their efforts could influence whether or not similar programs spread to other countries.
