Abstract: The associated diseases in 335 celiac patients diagnosed 1980-1990 were compared with age and sex matched control patients with various gastrointestinal symptoms. Endocrine disorders were found in 11.9% of celiac and 4.3% of control patients (p=0.0003). Celiac patients had insulin dependent diabetes mellitus significantly (p=0.0094) more often (5.4%) than control patients (1.5%). Connective tissue diseases were found in 7.2% of celiac and 2.7% of control patients (p=0.011). Sjogrens syndrome occurred in 3.3% of celiac patients and 0.3% of controls (p = 0.0059).
