Celiac disease linked to earlier menopause

Saw this article on Reuters.com this morning----untreated celiac disease can lead to earlier menopause. I thought at the end of the article that an interesting point was made: if a woman experiences premature menopause, she should at least consider the possibility of celiac disease. Getting a diagnosis and treatment (gluten free diet) can improve the quality of life.
