Prospective study of body mass index in patients with coeliac disease
was published in the BMJ. It reports that of 50 newly diagnosed celiac patients, 11 were underweight, 22 were within the normal range, and 17 were overweight.

Celiac Disease in March 1999
An interesting article by Dr. Murray for physicians

Absence of oats toxicity in adult coeliac disease
This study shows the safety of adding oats to the gluten-free diet of 10 patients with coeliac disease. Seven of the patients have continued to take the same quantity of oats for more than 12 months without adverse effect. These findings are in agreement with a recently published study.2 In that study, however, the authors stated that they excluded coeliac patients with "severe" disease. No such policy was adopted in our study, and two of our patients were subsequently shown to be exquisitely sensitive when given a gluten micro-challenge. A third patient was also shown to be very sensitive to trace quantities of gluten taken inadvertently.

A comparison of diets with and without oats in adults with celiac disease
This paper says: BACKGROUND. Wheat, rye, and barley damage the small-intestinal mucosa of patients with celiac disease; maize and rice are harmless. The effects of a diet containing oats are uncertain.

A report shows that celiac disease is far more common than generally thought
Coeliac disease in primary care: case finding study Harold Hin, Graham Bird, Peter Fisher, Nick Mahy, and Derek Jewell BMJ 1999; 318: 164-167.

Being overweight and having undiagnosed celiac disease
The British Medical Journal just published a very interesting article reporting that of 50 newly diagnosed celiac patients, 11 were underweight, 22 were within the normal range, and 17 were overweight. That would appear to challenge the conventional perspective on underweight celiacs.

It averages 10 years for a U.S. Celiac person to be diagnosed.
"In Italy, where celiac disease is common, all children are screened by age 6 so that even asymptomatic disease is caught early. In addition, Italians of any age are tested for the disease as soon as they show symptoms. As a result of this vigilance, the time between when symptoms begin and the disease is diagnosed is usually only 2 to 3 weeks. In the United States, the time between the first symptoms and diagnosis averages about 10 years."
