The Cribsiders Podcast on pediatric medicine recently released an episode with a special guest, Dr. Dale Lee from Seattle Children’s Hospital, about the diagnosis and management of celiac disease.

In this episode, called Celiac Disease – The Great Mimicker, they discuss how almost any symptom can mimic celiac disease, the importance of running labs and the role of the endoscopy, and the management and monitoring of celiac disease patients to see if they are responding to the gluten-free diet.
