Confirming the link between Celiac disease and IBD : meta-analysis

Interestingly our children's GI tests both Crohn's kids for celiac once or twice per year. I always wondered why thinking you have it or you don't. Neither are positive for the celiac "gene". One of them avoids gluten products. Not entirely, but if there is any option. So far neither have celiac but I am glad they are tested.
I've heard that chrons is common in those with celiac disease. I've personally undertook a gluten-free diet as soon as I was diagnosed. Gluten never really agreed with me anyway. My flare ups aren't half as bad as before!
