Are there other diseases related to celiac disease?

Among celiacs and their relatives, there appears to be a higher incidence of other disorders related to the immune system. A partial listing of these includes insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (type I), Graves disease, Addisons disease, scleroderma, chronic active hepatitis, myasthenia gravis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and Sjogrens syndrome.

In addition, a gluten-free diet appears to have helped some individuals with autism, chronic fatigue syndrome (myalgic encephalomyelitis or ME, PVS, post viral fatigue syndrome or PVFS), attention deficit disorder (ADD), and ADHD; though it is by no means a cure for any of these.

I was wondering if there is any research on the comorbidity of anorexia nervosa and celiac disease. I have not found much research on it.

Interesting! I was wondering if there is any connection with achalasia and coeliac disease. That too is auto immune and affects the digestive system. Thanks!
