Celiac Disease Screening Among a Large Cohort of Overweight/Obese Children

Celiac.com 03/10/2015 - Up to now, celiac disease has been described only in sporadic cases of obesity. A research team recently set out to evaluate retrospectively celiac disease rates in a large group of overweight/obese children and adolescents.

For their study, the team consecutively evaluated 1,527 overweight/obese children and adolescents, 10 girls and 7 boys had positive celiac serology and showed villous atrophy.

All celiac patients immediately began a well-balanced gluten-free diet, and rapid weight loss followed.

The study shows that celiac rates in overweight/obese children are similar to rates in the general Italian pediatric population, and that those children benefit from proper diagnosis and a healthy gluten-free diet.

Thank you for trying Kerry! I was unable to open the link though. Another celiac.com page pops up telling me I do not have an account for it.

I don't use these things they are usually sodium bombs!

I don't Usually use the super processed stuff, which this is. I use the spices or the gluten free spice mixes. I assume maybe something just didn't set well but I doubt it's gluten because I believe they're reputable. My husband doesn't have celiac and said his tummy is weird too, so I doubt it's gluten. I'll call them today to be sure.

I use them, too.
