The prevalence of adult celiac disease in sweden


, : The prevalence of adult celiac disease in sweden. Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology 16(2): 257-262

The occurrence of celiac disease was less recognized among adults than in children. The prevalence of adult celiac disease was examined in a defined population in Sweden, on the basis of results obtained during 7 yr gastroenterological routine practice. On July. 1, 1979, the overall prevalence rate was 58/100,000 (1:1700). The age-adjusted rates were unevenly distributed. The peak rate, 130/100,000 (1:750), appearing in the age interval of 45-54 yr. Unrecognized middle-aged celiacs are evidently not symptom-free. They can apparently be found in routine practice. The peak of celiac disease unaccompanied by dermatitis herpetiformis is in the same range as the rate found in Swedish children.
