Abstract

AIM: To evaluate the temporal trend and extent of screening for celiac disease in an Italian pediatric population of incident type 1 diabetes in the period 2006–2011, providing information on adherence to guidelines in primary care. METHODS: Using the Lombardy region’s administrative database, 1–17-year-old children and adolescents diagnosed with type 1 diabetes during the 2006–2011 period were identified. Among these patients, the number screened for celiac disease was calculated on the basis of specific antibodies. RESULTS: Of the 1563 children and adolescents receiving a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes during the observational period, 53% were tested for celiac disease compared with 12% of individuals without diabetes. The extent to which screening was performed increased two-fold from the 2006–2008 to the 2009–2011 period (P
