Celiac Disease in Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus

Celiac.com 08/20/2012 - People with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) suffer from celiac disease at rates ranging from 4.4 to 11.1%, compared with rates of 0.5% for the general population.

To get a better sense of the issue, a research team recently assessed celiac disease in type 1 diabetes mellitus.

The research team included Maria Erminia Camarca, Enza Mozzillo, Rosa Nugnes, Eugenio Zito, Mariateresa Falco, Valentina Fattorusso, Sara Mobilia, Pietro Buono, Giuliana Valerio, Riccardo Troncone, and Adriana Franzese.

The are variously affiliated with the Department of Paediatrics, "Federico II" University, the School of Movement Sciences (DiSIST) at Parthenope University, and the Department of Cellular and Molecular Pathology "L. Califano", "Federico II" University, all in Naples, Italy.

People with T1D rarely show classical severe symptoms of celiac disease. Usually, they have few or mild symptoms of celiac disease, or show no symptoms at all (silent CD).

In fact for T1D patients, diagnosis of celiac disease is usually done by blood screening.

The effects of gluten-free diet (GFD) on the growth and T1D metabolic control in CD/T1D patient are controversial.

There is some debate about whether gluten-free foods have a higher glycemic index compared with to gluten-containing foods; and also about whether gluten-free foods might be be lower in fiber and higher in fat.

Adherence to a gluten-free diet by children with CD-T1D has generally been reported at below 50%, compared with about 73% for those with celiac disease alone. Failure to follow a gluten-free diet is even more common among asymptomatic patients.

The more severe problems of gluten-free diet adherence usually occur during adolescence when non-compliant subjects report the lowest quality of life.

The researchers suggest providing psychological and educational support for these patients.

Designed to reduce or eliminate symptoms of gluten contamination in gluten-sensitive individuals, the product known as AN-PEP, marketed in the U.S. as Tolerase G, is a prolyl endoprotease enzyme, derived from Aspergillus niger, that has shown promise in breaking down gluten proteins.

I can not help you with a cheaper price (google it), but if you have celiac disease, I would make sure the alternative gluten free flours are not milled with gluten flours by calling the manufacturer. I personally make sure that my gluten-free flours are certified gluten free. I do not worry ...

I think that your villi are intact. So, normally that would mean no evidence of celiac disease. But Victoria is right, that they should have run a celiac blood panel to help rule out celiac disease. Why? The small intestine is vast. If spread out, it is larger than a tennis court! The biops...

Yes, it is the same test. When used in conjunction with celiac testing, it verifies that the celiac IgA test results are valid. Used alone (not running the celiac tests), if the Immunoglobulin A result is above or below range....then you are dealing with another set of problems. For example,...

Grass fed is just the natural, traditional way of cattle eating -- eating grass on the range. People now pay a higher price for this kind of meat. It is a leaner meat because cattle do a lot of walking around to graze. Cattle, in feed lots or a combination, fatten up fast on a grain diet (e...
