Celiac disease can be considered “the great pretender” (as syphilis some years ago). A prevalent disease with different presentations, including silent ones. In relation to diet with cereals, other non-celiac diseases are appearing, that also improve removing wheat. The fact that it´s being diagnosed in adults, adds complexity because protocols are somehow different than protocols in children. New data about celiac disease and other syndromes related to cereals help clarify practical management.
