Celiac disease is caused by a complex immunological response provoked by grain protein in susceptible people. The prevalence of CD in children with IDDM ranges between 1.3 and 12% throughout the world and may contain a high proportion of clinically asymptomatic and atypical cases. The main role of the serological tests in clinical practice is in screening patients with diseases associated with CD and who may have atypical or silent forms of CD, in order to avoid an unnecessary biopsy.
