Who’s at risk


Who’s at Risk?

Men, woman and children of any age or race are at risk for Celiac Disease.  Higher-than-average risk include individuals with First or Second Degree relative with Celiac Disease, HLA-DQ2 or HLA-DQ8 Genes, Iron-Deficiency, Pre-mature Osteoporosis/Osteopenia, Type 1 Diabetes, Thyroid Disease, Reproductive Disorders, IBS, Liver Disease and Down Syndrome or Turner’s Syndrome.


Factors that can increase your risk for developing Celiac Disease:

  1. First or Second Degree relative with Celiac Disease:  It is more common for individuals with family history of Celiac disease because it is genetically based.
  2. HLA-DQ2 and HLA-DQ8 Genes:  Having HLA-DQ2 or HLA DQ8 genes means that you are at risk for developing Celiac Disease, but does not mean you absolutely have the disease.  Approximately 95% individuals with Celiac Disease have HLA-DQ2 and approximately 5% have HLA-DQ8
