Liver Disease and Celiac Disease
Some celiac patients suffer from liver damage that resolves after gluten-free diet; a condition known as "celiac hepatitis." A new study shows a connection to high antibody levels.
About four out of every ten celiac disease patients have abnormal liver function tests (LFTs) when first diagnosed, but a new study suggests that these abnormal tests usually return to normal once patients adopt a gluten-free diet.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is a common cause of chronic liver disease. There's good data showing that celiac disease changes intestinal permeability, and that treatment with a gluten-free diet often causes weight gain, but so far there is scant documentation of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in patients with celiac disease.
Researchers don't really have too much data on celiac disease in patients with cryptogenic cirrhosis or idiopathic noncirrhotic intrahepatic portal hypertension (NCIPH).
A team of researchers recently set out to determine what factors contribute to hypertransaminasemia in patients with celiac disease.
Many people with celiac disease show slightly elevated liver enzymes, though these enzyme levels usually return to normal after gluten-free diet. A team of researchers recently set out to investigate the cause and prevalence of altered liver function tests in celiac patients
