Is There a Connection Between Celiac Disease and Inflammatory Bowel Disease?

Celiac.com 02/27/2012 - The relationship between celiac disease and inflammatory bowel disease has not been well documented. One study that hasn't gotten too much attention was published in 2008. To get a better idea regarding any connection, a team of researchers studied rates of celiac disease in patients with inflammatory bowel disease, along with the rates of inflammatory bowel disease in patients with celiac disease.

They are affiliated with the Gastroenterology and Liver Unit of Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield, UK. 

The team recruited patients from clinics specializing in inflammatory bowel disease and celiac disease, along with control subjects from the local population. They then tested subjects for Antigliadins, endomysial, tissue transglutaminase antibodies and total IgA levels. They offered duodenal biopsy to patients with positive antibodies. The team reviewed colonoscopy and biopsy data for celiac patients.

In all, the team assessed 305 patients with celiac disease, 354 patients with IBD, and 601 healthy control subjects. The IBD group included 154 patients with ulcerative colitis (UC), 173 with Crohn's disease, 18 with indeterminate colitis, and nine cases of microscopic colitis. Forty-seven patients showed positive antibodies, while three patients showed villous atrophy upon biopsy.

All three patients with villous atrophy showed positive anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies, but only two tested positive for endomysial antibody (EMA). Ten celiac patients had IBD (5 UC and 5 lymphocytic colitis). Five control subjects had celiac disease, while two had IBD (1 Crohn's disease and 1 UC). Stepwise multiple logistic regression showed that only antibody positivity was a factor (p<0.0001).

The results showed that people with celiac disease had IBD at rates ten times higher than the control group (odds ratio 9.98, 95% CI 2.8-45.9, p=0.0006), while patients with IBD had celiac disease at about the same rates control subjects (odds ratio 1.02, 95% CI, 0.24-4.29, p=1.0).

Very well done. Celiac disease is a hard diagnosis, and it's easy to see how it could be connected to many symptoms and ailments. Subway is investigating the possibility of having a gluten-free bread option nation-wide.

LOL, re: trousers vs. pants. Here in the US, trousers are a specific kind of pants/slacks, with a looser fit and often with pleats in the front. I also read that Vit D helps digestion; can't recall the links, but likely within Gundry's writings about lectin. My Dr. just told me to res...

I'd try the gluten free diet for a few months to see if that helps at all. Can't hurt. If it doesn't help I'd try a low FODMAP meat and veggies diet.

A good amount of the neurological effects from celiac are also related to nutrient deficiencies caused by malabsorbtion from damaged intestines and the fact that most gluten-free foods are not fortified and your net eating many grains. You sound good about the CC and everything and seem to be tak...

Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes.

I would add your pharmacist to that that list and double check when getting a script filled that they checked to make sure it is safe. You will also need to tell any romatic partners as if they are gluten consumers they should brush their teeth before any kissing.
