Heart Failure and Celiac Disease

This category contains summaries of research articles that deal with heart failure and it's association with celiac disease. Most of the articles are research summaries that include the original source of the summary.

    Does a gluten-free diet have any effect on cardiovascular risk in people with celiac disease? Does it effect people without celiac disease? So far, both questions have remained unanswered.

    Recently, a team of researchers set out to conduct a systematic review to shed some light on the matter. The team was led by Michael D.E. Potter, MBBS (Hons), from the University of New Castle, Australia.

    The team focused their review on the "potential of the gluten-free diet to affect modifiable cardiovascular risk factors including weight, blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugars,"...

    Recent data show that more adults with celiac disease may face a higher risk for cardiovascular disease compared with the general population.

    A team of researchers recently set out to investigate the association of with cardiovascular disease risk factors at late adolescence in a cross-sectional population-based study.

    Do non-celiacs who eat a gluten-free diet face a greater risk of developing coronary heart disease?

    To shed some light on this question, a team of researchers recently set out to assess levels of long-term term gluten consumption in connection with the development of coronary heart disease.

    For their prospective cohort study, the team looked at 64,714 women in the Nurses’ Health Study and 45,303 men in the Health Professionals Follow-up Study. None of the subjects had any history of coronary heart disease, and all completed a 131 item semiquantitative food frequency questionnaire in 1986 that was updated every four years through 2010.

    Sometimes individual medical cases that initially puzzle doctors can yield new revelations for doctors and patients, and sometimes point to new directions for inquiry. The case of a young woman whose serious heart problems led doctors to discover a that she suffered from celiac disease is just the latest example.

    People with celiac disease are almost twice as likely to have coronary artery disease, and 1.4 times as likely to suffer a stroke, as the general population.

    People who suffer from celiac disease with persistent villous atrophy do not face any higher risk of ischemic heart disease or atrial fibrillation, according to a recent study by a research team in Sweden.

    People with celiac disease face double the risk of coronary artery disease compared with the general population, according to research to be presented at the American College of Cardiology's 63rd Annual Scientific Session.

    A team of researchers recently looked at young adults with celiac disease to see what, if any, added risk they may have for developing atherosclerosis.

    Some doctors and nutritionists have expressed concern that a gluten-free diet might increase the risk of cardiovascular problems in patients with celiac disease.

    With regard to celiac disease and cardiovascular disease, there are two conflicting schools of thought. The first suggests that the gluten-free diet might help people with celiac disease to reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. The second suggest the opposite: that a gluten-free diet may leave people with celiac disease at greater risk of developing cardiovascular disease. What's the right answer?

    Researchers have established a number of inflammatory markers as risk factors for atrial fibrillation (AF), but they know very little about how autoimmune diseases affect AF. A team of researchers recently set out to examine the association between celiac disease and AF in a large cohort of patients with biopsy-verified celiac disease.

    New study on asthma, heart disease and celiac disease.
    Population based studies in Sweden claim that celiacs have increased risk of heart disease and asthma.

    Faced with cases of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy that seemed to coincide with celiac disease, a team of Turkish researchers recently set out to determine if a possible connection exists between the two conditions.

    A recent report by Iranian doctors supports the idea that celiac disease, by means of a heightened immune response in the splenoportal axis, can lead to the development of idiopathic portal hypertension in susceptible affected patients. 12/11/2006 – A retrospective cohort study presented by Gunnar Midhagen with hi 02/26/2003 - The subject of cardiology-related symptoms of celiac disease and celiac d
