Scleroderma And Celiac

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new to these forums and really glad to be here. I have Celiac disease and since I have found out I have been so much happier! I took myself off of all gluten products for good! And I have never felt healthier or more in control of my health.

However, this posting isn't about me. My dear friend just got diagnosed with Scleroderma which is a deadly and debilitating disorder. Is there any link between Celiac and Scleroderma? I know there is a link between Scleroderma and Lupus and now researchers are finding links between Lupus and Celiac so I'm trying to find any info that can help my friend through this scary time.

Can anyone point me in the direction of research being done on Scleroderma and it's possible links to Celiac or does anyone have a similar story?

Thank you so much for your time. We are really worried over here.

Thank you!!!!

Here you go I found this by searching with both scleroderma and celiac. You may be able to find more.

"Gluten sensitivity and Celiac disease are a known cause of scleroderma and dozens of other autoimmune diseases. Even if tests for gluten sensitivity and Celiac disease are negative or inconclusive, trial of a gluten-free and casein-free (Gluten-free Casein-free) should be considered"
