Screening For Coeliac Disease

People ask me if they should be screened for coeliac disease.

This page on Coeliac UK is entitled Screening For Coeliac Disease.

They quote this advice from NICE.

NICE has advised that people with close relatives (for example father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister) are at increased risk of coeliac disease and so should be considered for screening. This would involve having a blood test in the first instance.

That sounds fairly sensible to me.
