    Diabetes: Gastroparesis, Diabetes and Celiac Disease

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    The following was written by Joseph A. Murray, MD. (murray.joseph@mayo.edu) of the Mayo Clinic Rochester, MN, who is a gastroenterologist who specializes in treating Celiac disease:

    Subject: diabetes and celiac disease, gastroparesis

    There is a definite incidence of celiac disease in type one diabetes in Caucasians at least. Anywhere from of 3.3% to 10 % of people with type one diabetes will have or develop celiac disease. Any form of diabetes can lead to gastroparesis, usually after many years of diabetes. The symptoms can be similar in many ways, bloating after meals, abdominal pain. Diarrhea is not usually caused by the gastroparesis itself (diabetic diarrhea may occur as part of the nerve damage caused by the long-standing diabetes). I have several patients who have diabetes, gastroparesis and celiac disease. Certainly identifying the celiac disease often makes a big difference to the symptoms.

  • About Me

    Celiac.com's Founder and CEO, Scott was diagnosed with celiac disease  in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. Scott launched the site that later became Celiac.com in 1995 "To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives."  In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
