Study Clarifies Risk Levels for Development of Celiac Disease in Children with Type-1 Diabetes

Celiac.com 07/10/2007 - Studies have shown children with Type 1 diabetes to have a greater risk of developing celiac disease. A study published recently in Diabetes Care shows that people with celiac disease who follow a strict gluten-free diet frequently have inferior body composition and nutritional uptake compared to healthy people without celiac disease.

Faced with a shortage of solid data on the exact nature of the levels at which children with type 1 diabetes are at risk for developing celiac disease, a Swedish research team set out to review the Swedish national inpatient registry for the years 1964 to 2003. 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 for patients with celiac disease who are following a strict gluten-free diet, and who were in full clinical, biochemical, and histological remission. They looked at data from 45,680 patients. Children with a one year follow-up after entering the study were added to the final results.

Celiac Disease in Children Linked to Type-1 Diabetes

The results showed that children with celiac disease face an increased risk of developing type 1 diabetes before the age of 20 (hazard ratio 2.4 [95% CI 1.9 –3.0], P 0.001). Children with celiac disease also faced an increased risk of ketaocidosis or diabetic coma before the age of 20 (2.3 [1.4 –3.9], P 0.001).

This increase showed up without regard to the age at diagnosis [those diagnosed between 0 and 2 (2.2 [1.7–2.9], P 0.001) or 3 and 20 (3.4 [1.9 – 6.1], P 0.001) years of age.]

Given that 95% of individuals with celiac disease are HLA-DQ2 positive, these increased risk levels were comparatively low, though still significant.

I think you need to take a little time to learn about DH and celiac disease. Celiac and DH are technically autoimmune disorders. This is about DH: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/dermatitis-herpetiformis/ Learning about celiac disease (overview): ...

I mean I might get a prescription refill, or a new vitamin pill for example, and take it for awhile, with absolutely no symptoms. As we know, no symptoms does not mean no damage being done. I will feel fine for weeks, but then I start feeling awful, like a bad flu coming on. I never did get t...

If you get accidentally glutened, how do you keep doing it for several weeks? Or do you mean you get glutened once and several weeks later you react?

I think, at least from my personal experience, that these tests are accurate if you were diagnosed including blood work that was positive. All of the tests on my panel were positive by large numbers at diagnosis and over the next year, they went to very low normal for the ranges given. My GI sy...
