I have Hashi's and Coeliac, my grandmother had Type 1 diabetes so did 3 of my aunts and my son has it too. My daughter has lichen planus an a/i skin disease very similar to psoriasis

Rheumatoid arthritis is the other big auto-immune disease in our family, going back to my great grandmother that I know of I'm the only one I know with Hashi's and Coeliac

I think it's a matter of auto-immune diseases in general tending to run in families/ be genetic .......different members can have different diseases not necessarily the same ones it's a matter of being aware

Others may have a different perspective/understanding

There have been many, many reports on this board of various autoimmune disorders (including Hashimoto's, diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis) greatly improving or even completely disappearing upon going strictly gluten-free.

This would suggest that it is more than a concurrence or cluster of related disorders, and that celiac might trigger the others.

Good luck convincing the pharmaceutical-industry-run medical system of that, though--they don't make any $ from a gluten-free diet, they make all their money from drugs and expensive tests.

There is a 10% correlation between Celiac and auto-immune thyroid disease.

Considering the other auto-immune family history, your daughter should be screened. You should also get familiar with the symptoms, in case she does not come back positive but develops them in the future.

I would guess that it is much, much higher than that. University of Chicago's 2006 study, indicating a confirmed diagnosis of celiac in 1/133 people (with an average of ELEVEN YEARS before being diagnosed) strongly suggests that far more people actually have celiac than the "experts" know.

My endocrinologist is now screening all thyroid patients and all diabetic patients for celiac.

If you have Celiac disease there is somewhere between a 1 in 20 and a 1 in 10 chance that a close relative will have it as well. Depends on who you read.

I totally agree. I think they should screen all auto-immune thyroid disease and diabetic patients.

All the statistics are changing daily, and the rates and incidences keep going up.

    Hi, Thanks for your answer! Unfortunately I have to follow the MAOI diet for as long as I'm taking the MAOI, so essentially nobody's going to be inviting me round to dinner from now on… This is a bit of a shock. I don't really have any clear-cut symptoms that I would've considered worth going to the GP about. I mean I'm always tired and I have a bit of IBS and so on but generally I put that down to the other things wrong with me and the medication I have to take for them (mostly the bi
    Thanks Posterboy, that was interesting information.  I believe that I had read something elsewhere about tetracycline, at least, being used instead of, or along with, Dapsone for severe or refractory cases of DH. Unfortunately, even if I had medical insurance (which I do not), and had a regular doctor who was even willing to recognize and accept my condition for what it is, I don't know what kind of luck I would have in persuading that hypothetical doctor to give me a particular and non-sta
