Gut Reation

There is a disease you've probably never heard of, but chances are you have it or someone you know or love has it and doesn't know. Doctors now believe that 1-in-133 Americans have Celiac Disease (an intestinal disorder where your immune system attacks wheat, barley and rye as if they were a virus), though only 1-in-4,700 gets diagnosed. Celiac is more common than diabetes and hypertension, but because the means to diagnose it are only 2 or 3 years old, the disease is practically unknown in this country - both to sufferers and their doctors.
