Why do you ask about my familial health history for the celiac disease screening test?
Several diseases and conditions are linked to and associated with celiac disease. We ask these questions to better assess your risk of having celiac disease along with your lab results. There are a myriad of risk factors you should be aware of. For example, celiac disease is more rampant in individuals who have other autoimmune diseases like Sjogren’s disease, Type 1 diabetes, and arthritis, and genetic conditions like down syndrome.
