Atopic Dermatitis Is Common in People with Celiac Disease

J Allergy Clin Immunol 2004;113:1199-1203.

Celiac.com 07/30/2004 - According to a study by Italian researchers published in the June edition of the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, the prevalence of atopic dermatitis is much more common in those with celiac disease. The researchers looked at 1,044 adults with untreated celiac disease at the point of their diagnoses, as well as 2,752 of their relatives, and 318 of their spouses. They also looked at the prevalence of allergies in celiacs after one year on a gluten-free diet. The subjects filled out a standardized questionnaire upon their diagnosis, and those who reported having an allergy were tested for it using a standard makeup of 20 antigens for serum specific IgE.

The researchers found that one celiac in 173 (16.6%) had at least one additional allergy, compared with 523 of their relatives (19%), and 43 of their spouses (13.5%). Patients with celiac disease were also more likely (3.8%) to have atopic dermatitis than their relatives (2.3%) or their spouses (1.3%). The amount of time that the celiac patients went undiagnosed and therefore untreated did not seem to influence the presence of allergy or atopic dermatitis. It is possible that a longer period of time on a gluten-free diet could influence the prevalence of allergy in those with celiac disease, and more research needs to be done to determine if being gluten-free longer can decrease allergies in those with celiac disease.

Asthma can be caused by gluten sensitivity as per my case...I am a celiac self diagnosed due to smooth colon per colonoscopy results, osteoporosis, tooth enamel deterioration and awareness of my life of allergies to grasses and much more. Could never get help...so took it into my own research to get off of steroid shots, antihistamines and inhalers that made me sicker. Oh, acid reflux big time also that was all resolved with gluten free diet. God Bless the medical professionals that really care to cure and study to learn what they don't know. Wish I had found them!!

@cyclinglady I heard that there were problems with Armour Thyroid when it came to gluten a few years ago. I thought it was no longer safe? @MegamaniacI had forgot to put that in my original post that I have a lot of issues with anxiety as well. I've never actually been officially diagnosed w...

He said he was going to set me up with a nutritionist. I will definitely check out the newb...
