Celiac Patients Face Higher Risk of Developing Chronic Renal Disease

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.

Vitamin deficiencies of vitamins D, C, and B12 and Calcium deficiency can all cause night sweats. (Perhaps the methyl form of B12 is needed for those with that MthFr gene.) Also, consistently high blood sugar levels can cause night sweats. As a type two diabetic, I find if my blood sugar...

It's unfair to make such a general statement about ER's and hospitals. Unfortunately, I've been to the ER several times and hospitalized three times in the past few years. The staff took me seriously when I told them I had celiac. Popsicles and drinks were checked for gluten, and a good laugh ...

Hello, I have been dealing with a mysterious rash for the past ten years that I am slowly beginning to think is DH. It comes and goes, is itchy as all get out and shows up in all the areas that DH appears (elbows, back, torso, knees and base of neck). It comes and goes over the years which...

I'm sorry I don't have much advice for you but I can relate in some ways. I've took generic Zoloft for about 10 years. When I was diagnosed celiac I worried about and researched my medications and am confident that they are safe for me. I have spent many years fighting depression and anxiety and ...
