A team in Finland found that the growth rate drops in most celiac kids before their diagnosis. In fact, when researchers combined five growth parameters, such as change in height and change in body mass index, growth abnormalities were evident two years before diagnosis in about half the youngsters. Researchers concluded that celiac disease could be detected earlier by closely tracking these growth parameters in children. The study was published in March 2015 in JAMA Pediatrics.
