Osteoporosis, Osteomalacia, Bone Density and Celiac Disease

This category contains summaries of research articles that deal with osteoporosis, osteomalacia and bone density issues and their association with celiac disease. Most of the articles are research summaries that include the original source of the summary.

    Adults with celiac disease often show atypical symptoms, though it is not uncommon for them to suffer from malabsorption of vitamins and minerals, which can result in disrupt normal bone metabolism.

    A team of researchers recently set out to evaluate laboratory deficiencies related to bone metabolism, and to assess the relationship between severity of histological damage and the degree of bone mass loss at celiac diagnosis. The research team included L. Posthumus, and A. Al-Toma A of the Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, St Antonius Hospital, Nieuwegein, The Netherlands.

    Research conducted with high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HRpQCT) has documented substantial bone micro-architecture in premenopausal women with newly diagnosed celiac disease.

    Some doctors recommend that patients with newly diagnosed celiac disease get scanned for bone density. Several researchers recently set out to assess the bone density results in a cohort of patients with celiac disease.

    Patients with active celiac disease are more likely to have osteoporosis and a higher risk of bone fractures. What does that mean for premenospausal women with celiac disease?

    It's well-documented that people with active celiac disease are more likely to have osteoporosis and increased risk of fractures. High-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT) allows for three-dimensional exploration of bone micro-architecture, including measurement of cortical and trabecular compartments, and providing detailed information on bone disease pathophysiology and fracture.

    A team of researchers recently set out to determine rates of low bone mass density in people with non-celiac gluten sensitivity, and to search for correlations with other clinical characteristics.

    There is a large body of data that show that celiac disease is associated with metabolic bone disorders, such as low bone mineral density.

    Celiac disease have a greater risk of bone fracture than non-celiacs; a risk that persists after diagnosis. Also a substantial number of celiac patients display signs of persistent villous atrophy on follow-up biopsy.

    Celiac disease affects about 1-2% of people, globally. Formerly regarded as a childhood disease, most people are now diagnosed with celiac disease as adults. Many of those adults with celiac disease suffer the consequences of an impaired bone mineralization.

    Most people with celiac disease are now diagnosed as adults, and many suffer from impaired bone mineralization. Researchers recently conducted a review of bone mineral density in patients with adult celiac disease.

    A team of medical researchers recently set out to study the effects of exercise and gluten-free diet on bone-mass in women with celiac disease.

    There is conflicting data regarding whether a GFD can improve he bone health of celiacs. An Argentinian study finds that men are at increased risk of peripheral fractures before being diagnosed with celiac, and the risk is abrogated upon assumption of a GFD.

    People with celiac disease, who otherwise have no risk for osteoporosis, face a risk of developing progressive bone loss that is more than four times higher than the general population. This according to a study by the researchers from the Lancaster University School of Health and Medicine in the UK.

    A paper by Dr. Ameya Joshi on the elevated risk of bone fracture faced by people with both celiac disease and type 1 diabetes received second prize at the December 2010 Annual Conference of the Endocrine Society of India.

    New research on vitamins and celiac disease
    Children with celiac disease face high risks for bone disease without supplemental vitamins, according to a recent study by scientists at the Canada's University of Alberta. The study shows that without certain crucial vitamins, children with celiac disease face a greater risk for weak bones and osteoporosis.

    Clinicians recently described a case of severe osteoporosis with high bone turnover, in which they found neutralizing autoantibodies against osteoprotegerin to be present. They also report finding autoantibodies against osteoprotegerin in three additional patients with celiac disease.

    It's well known that people with celiac disease often show reduced bone mineral density, and that metabolic bone disease is a significant and common complication of celiac disease. A new article in the journal Nutrition Reviews reinforces the benefits of a gluten-free diet in reducing bone problems in children with celiac disease.

    Doctors are recommending screening for bone density in children with newly diagnosed celiac disease. 04/10/2007 - According to a recent Swedish research report, the adverse immune respons
