CD SKILLS - Analysis of the current state of art in the management of celiac disease in the Danube region


Partners of the CD SKILLS project invited healthcare professionals and celiac disease patients from the Danube region to participate in 4 web-based surveys developed within the project. More than 3000 participants provided valuable data.

Preliminary analysis of health records of 254 celiac disease patients showed that a no-biopsy approach recommended by European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) is followed in high proportion in all involved countries and is reaching 70% in the Danube region. This proportion is much higher than the one found five years ago within the Focus IN CD project conducted in the Central Europe (21%) and shows a major change in celiac disease management in the region.
