Why is Celiac Disease still being ignored by Doctors?
Celiac disease is the most general genetic condition in the world, so why don't most U.S. doctors know much about it? There are many reasons, but at present, the main reason is that there is no medication to treat celiac disease. If there was, the nightly news commercials would have the entire U.S. population believing that they might have celiac disease.
It is the best interest of pharmaceutical companies for people to not be tested for celiac disease, at least not until one of them has released a medication for the condition. If you're wondering why big pharmacy companies care if people are tested and diagnosed with celiac, the answer is obvious - money. I've personally met people who were once on prescription drugs for the conditions listed below; with all of their symptoms being directly related to their undiagnosed, untreated celiac disease - or gluten intolerance.In many cases, patients who adhere to the gluten-free dietare able to stop taking medications for symptoms related to their previously untreated celiac condition. This translates to lower prescription medication sales and less money for companies in that industry. Every loss adds up and the industry does not want to lose 1/10th of 1% of their profits.
