IF a person is diagnosed with celiac disease, are their siblings likely to have it as well? Is there anyone on FS who has celiac disease and their siblings have it too?

re celiac- yes it's possible if your sibling has celiac that you could and it is recommended that you get an annual blood testing to see if there are antibodies which could be an indication. you can also have a series of blood test one which looks for a particular defective gene. if you don't have the defective gene you can't acquire celiac but having the gene doesn't mean that you have it thus the annual screening.
