Mayo Clinic in Minnesota has a Pediatric Gastroenterology/Hepatology Clinic where children are tested and treated for celiac disease.
Celiac is considered a "silent" disease because it may damage the lining of a child's intestines without producing any symptoms. Intestinal damage is a particular concern in children because it hinders the absorption of nutrients during the years when nutrition is important for normal growth. Mayo specialists routinely screen children at risk for gluten intolerance, including family members of people with celiac and children who have chronic diarrhea or irritable bowel syndrome.
