Are there other diseases related to celiac disease?

Among celiacs and their relatives, there appears to be a higher incidence of other disorders related to the immune system. A partial listing of these includes insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (type I), Graves disease, Addisons disease, scleroderma, chronic active hepatitis, myasthenia gravis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and Sjogrens syndrome.

In addition, a gluten-free diet appears to have helped some individuals with autism, chronic fatigue syndrome (myalgic encephalomyelitis or ME, PVS, post viral fatigue syndrome or PVFS), attention deficit disorder (ADD), and ADHD; though it is by no means a cure for any of these.

I was wondering if there is any research on the comorbidity of anorexia nervosa and celiac disease. I have not found much research on it.

Interesting! I was wondering if there is any connection with achalasia and coeliac disease. That too is auto immune and affects the digestive system. Thanks!

Thanks guys! Ill defintley ask about the full thyroid panel. I did antibodies for those thyroid ones a year ago do i have to get that again. Thanks Ennis for those recommandations I will resort back to my food diary!

To add to the good advice above.

He needs them to back you up, be supportive etc. On no account shoul...
