Celiac disease can be confused with other conditions that have similar symptoms and complications. Celiac disease is often confused with chronic fatigue syndrome, anemia, Crohn's disease, diverticulitis, dermatological conditions, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, common intestinal tract infections, and anxiety. However, thanks to very pinpointed blood tests and intestinal biopsies, if your doctor suspects celiac disease, there are now very common tests to confirm the diagnosis.

What is the duration of cardiovascular infection?
Piedmont Heart Institute answered
The duration of cardiovascular infection is determined by the severity of the infection. If the infection is discovered quickly, aggressive medical intervention with antibiotics will be needed for two to eight weeks. If treatment is delayed, the infection is more difficult to eradicate, and treatment will take longer. Surgery along with a recovery period may be needed if the heart has been damaged. If no treatment is given, or if treatment is delayed too long, cardiovascular infection is fatal.
What is the rate of incidence for diabetic kidney disease?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
Sources estimate that 12 percent to 17 percent of all adults in the United States have some form of kidney disease. Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney disease and accounts for 44 percent of those with kidney failure, or end-stage kidney disease. But keep in mind that not everyone with diabetes develops kidney disease that progresses to kidney failure. About 24 million Americans live with diabetes, and about 180,000 of them have kidney failure.
