    Celiac.com 07/10/2007 - This study demonstrates that people with celiac disease face an elevated risk of glomerulonephritis. Multiple studies have shown higher levels of celiac disease auto-antibodies in patients with renal disease; and certain renal disease will improve on a low-antigenic diet that is gluten-free. Not much is understood about the risk of severe renal disease such as renal failure in individuals with celiac disease.

    In a general population based cohort study, a team of researchers set out to assess the individuals with celiac disease for any form of glomerulonephritis (acute, chronic and non- specified), chronic glomerulonephritis and renal replacement therapy including dialysis treatment and kidney transplantation.
    The research team was made up of Anders Ekbom, Michael Fored, Jonas F. Ludvigsson, Johnny Ludvigsson, Nders ekbom, Ola Ole, & Scott M. Montgomery.

    They looked at data from 14,336 patients who were diagnosed with celiac disease between 1964 and 2003. Patients were chosen from the Swedish Hospital Discharge Registry. They established a control group of 69,875 individuals matched for age, calendar year, sex and county.

    Higher Risk of Glomerulonephritis for Celiac Patients

    The results showed that patients with celiac disease face an increased risk of developing chronic renal disease, and may also be at a face a slightly higher risk for any form of glomerulonephritis.

    Celiac.com 09/19/2011 - Rates of end-stage renal disease are rising globally, and even though doctors often see elevated levels of celiac disease autoantibodies in renal disease, they do not yet fully understand the role of biopsy-verified celiac disease as a risk factor for end-stage renal disease.
    To gain a gleaner picture of possible connections, a team of researchers based in Sweden conducted a study of end-stage renal disease in individuals with celiac disease.
    The research team included A. Welander, K. G. Prütz, M. Fored, J. F. Ludvigsson. They are affiliated with the Department of Medicine at the Karolinska Institutet of the Karolinska ...

    Celiac.com 04/27/2012 - Urinary stone disease is condition often caused by malabsorption. Because of its high prevalence and incidence, doctors regard it as a serious issue. However, there are few population-based studies on the risk of urinary stone disease in patients with celiac disease.
    A team of medical researchers recently studied the risk of urinary stone disease in people with celiac disease. The research team included J. F. Ludvigsson, F. Zingone, M. Fored, C. Ciacci and M. Cirillo.
    For their population-based cohort study, the team used small intestinal biopsy reports gathered from all 28 Swedish pathology departments from 1969 to 2008...

    Celiac.com 05/21/2014 - A team of researchers recently studied the risk of renal disease in patients with both type 1 diabetes (T1D) and celiac disease.
    The research team included K. Mollazadegan, M. Fored, S. Lundberg, J. Ludvigsson, A. Ekbom, S.M. Montgomery, and J.F. Ludvigsson, with the Clinical Epidemiology Unit of the Department of Medicine at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden.
    For their study, the team used the Swedish Patient Register to review data on cases of T1D recorded at or before 30 years of age between 1964 and 2009.
