Thyroid & Pancreatic Disorders and Celiac Disease

This category contains summaries of research articles that deal with thyroid and pancreatic disorders and their association with celiac disease. Most of the articles are research summaries that include the original source of the summary.

    Should doctors screen patients with autoimmune thyroid disease for Celiac Disease? Researchers have noted a strong clinical association between autoimmune thyroid disease and adult celiac disease. In part, at least, this appears to be related to common genetically-based determinants as well as a common embryonic origin since the fetal thyroid is derived from the pharyngeal gut.

    How can doctors make sure they properly screen celiac patients for autoimmune thyroiditis? People with celiac disease have higher rates of autoimmune thyroiditis, and vice versa. Both of these common autoimmune diseases share multiple aspects lodging at the two ends of the gut-thyroid axis where the cross-talks' pathways are still unrivaled.

    Many people with celiac disease also have thyroid issues. In fact, it's the most common medical issue that celiacs have. However, just as we were often badly under-served by the medical community, as celiac disease patients before the new guidelines were issued in 2004, now we're often left high and dry as thyroid patients.

    Patients who have both pancreatic disease and celiac disease can experience adverse endocrine and exocrine changes. When this happens, severe clinical changes with marked nutritional alteration may result. For some patients, a gluten-free diet can help improve endocrine and exocrine pancreatic function.

    Is pancreatic exocrine insufficiency in celiac disease related to structural alterations in pancreatic parenchyma?

    Responding to observations and reports that many patients with postural tachycardia syndrome (PoTS) adopt a gluten-free diet without medical consultation, a team of researchers recently set out to evaluate the prevalence of celiac disease and self-reported gluten sensitivity in patients with PoTS, and to compare the results against data from the local population.

    Researchers try to learn more about celiac disease autoimmunity or tissue transglutaminase autoantibodies in Chinese patients with type 1 diabetes and autoimmune thyroid disease.

    People with celiac disease face a higher risk of developing primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) in the early years after their celiac disease is diagnosed, according to a new report from Sweden. The report appears in the The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

    A team of researchers recently conducted a prospective controlled study on a gluten-free diet and autoimmune thyroiditis in patients with celiac disease.

    New research on pancreatic insufficiency and celiac disease.
    One of the conditions associated with celiac disease is called exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. A research team set out to determine if adults celiacs with pancreatic insufficiency require long-term enzyme supplements.

    A team of researchers set out to assess long-term outcomes of thyroid function and autoimmunity in a large population of children with celiac disease.

    Common autoimmune disorders often coexist in the same subjects, and to cluster in families. A research team recently set out to quantify the risk of diagnosis of coexisting autoimmune diseases in more than 3000 index cases with clinically proven Graves' disease or Hashimoto's thyroiditis.

    A team of researchers recently set out to determine whether patients with autoimmune thyroid disease risk developing secondary autoimmune disorders, and whether such diseases tend to cluster in families.

    A team of researchers recently set out determine if tissue transglutaminase-2 IgA antibodies (anti-TGase II) present in blood samples from celiac disease patients react with thyroid tissue and possibly contribute to thyroid disease.

    According to a new study by doctors based in Sweden, people with celiac disease face a significantly higher risk of developing thyroid disorders, including hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism and thyroiditis. 04/23/2007 - The results of a recent Dutch study published in the World Journal of Gast
