Lots: The clinical presentation of celiac disease varies from patient to patient with either typical intestinal symptoms (see earlier healthtap answers on this topic) or a host of atypical extraintestinal manifestations. Important complications include: malnutrition, osteoporosis, infertility, GI cancers. Up to 30% have persistent/recurrent symptoms, incomplete response, or refractory disease.
