Celiac Rates in Scotland Doubled in Just Five Years

Celiac.com 01/22/2016 - The number of children with gluten intolerance in one part of Scotland has more than doubled in just five years, according to a new survey.

Photo: CC--Moyan BrennThe results of the survey, which were presented at a major meeting of children's health experts, indicate that the number of children diagnosed with celiac disease in the Lothian health region rose sharply between 2010 and 2015.

Between 2010 and 2014, data from the Royal Hospital for Sick Children revealed a total of 168 patients under the age of 16 with celiac disease, with 30 per cent of these diagnosed in 2014, compared to just 12.5 per cent in 2010.

Statistics show 21 cases in 2010, a number which rises to 34 in 2012 and 49 by 2014.

Doctors have not yet determined if the rise in celiac cases in Lothian is due to better disease awareness, and more stringent diagnostic techniques. They will undoubtedly be following up to determine the likely cause of the rise in celiac cases.

Meanwhile, they are urging doctors and clinicians to do more to spot celiac cases early, so as to help patients avoid possibly serious celiac-related complications as they age.

Is it the chemicals that they are putting on the wheat?

In the US, after 2008-10 there was a soaring rate of cases attributed to awareness. I don't think it is all awareness. But, I watched stores having no GF food in 2008-09 do a complete 180 in a couple years. Because I had gut and other problems after going on GF diet, I was able to trace them to highly fluoridated water where I was living. ( Fluoride mixes with strong acid of the stomach and creates a gas that dissolves endothelium/epithelium barriers) But, the kicker was to find a new hidden source of fluoride. It is being sprayed and fumed on and into grain, beans and nuts!!!--This was decided by the 1999 Montreal Protocol that went into effect about five years later. They are using Sodium Fluoride!!! The effects were not noticed right away because the massive stores of food treated the other way had to be used up. This new SF treatment puts fluoride on the grain that mixes with stomach acid--that in turn opens up the lining of the gut right at the time you eat a piece of bread with gluten and every other barrier in its path. It was a real bright combination-- ..it will kill rodents and my guess will make a lot of small children sick or worse.

The article title is very misleading - this is one town, and a very small sample.

After reading the ingredients list on-line, they list cheese cultures (from barley), which is a first for me! I would not eat this because barley is no-no. Maybe there is another brand that is gluten free? You might want to do an on-line search.

I totally get Celiac's Wifey's line of thinking & agree wholeheartedly! I would like to build upon what Celiac's Wifey said but I'm not going to repeat what she said; I'm going in a different direction. I think that the particular source of gluten also plays a part in our physical react...

I just wanted to say that regardless of what test results you get give serious thought to going properly gluten free once testing is complete. I suffered almost 20 years of sciatic back pain along with many of the other symptoms you list above and only found relief once I removed gluten from my d...

Zaditor is OTC now and that is what I use for my eyes during allergy season. It works well and I don't worry about it drying out my eyes even more because you only use 1 drop in each eye, 1-2 times per day. They help tremendously with the allergic response so well worth using! You can try some...

All of the above mentioned treatments are worth trying but I have done almost all of them with little to no improvement. If you just have dry eye caused by anything other than Sjogren's, they might help but if you have Sjogren's with a lot of collateral damage to your glands, don't expect a lot ...
