Sjogrens Syndrome and Celiac Disease
Collin P et al. (1994) Celiac disease - associated disorders and survival. Gut vol 35 (9):1215 1218.
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).

In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I foundedÂ The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.View all articles by Scott Adams
