    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.

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.

    The team used biopsy reports from 28 pathology departments in Sweden between 1969 and 2008 to gather data on patients with celiac disease with villous atrophy (Marsh stage 3). They found 954 patients with both T1D and celiac disease. They age and sex-matched each patient with T1D + celiac disease to five reference individuals with T1D only (n = 4,579).

    They used Cox regression to estimate the following risks of both chronic and end-stage renal disease in patients with celiac disease + T1D compared with T1D patients only. They found that forty-one (4.3%) patients with celiac disease + T1D and 143 (3.1%) patients with T1D only developed chronic renal disease. This corresponded to an HR of 1.43 for chronic renal disease (95% CI 0.94, 2.17) in patients with celiac disease + T1D compared with T1D only.

    In addition, for end-stage renal disease there was a positive (albeit statistically non-significant) HR of 2.54 (95% CI 0.45, 14.2). For chronic renal disease, the excess risk was more pronounced after >10 years of celiac disease (HR 2.03, 95% CI 1.08, 3.79).

    Overall the two groups showed similar risk estimates when the cohort was restricted to T1D patients who had an inpatient diagnosis of T1D; those who had never received oral glucose-lowering medication; and (3) those who had not received their first diabetes diagnosis during pregnancy.

    The team found no excess risk of chronic renal disease in patients with T1D and celiac disease. Interestingly, a sub-analysis did show a connection between long-term celiac disease and chronic renal disease in people with T1D.

    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...

    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...
