I don't know if it's causative, but my gastroenterologist told me they were "associated".

My daughter and I both have microscopic colitis and we both have celiac. It is more of a case of correlation than causation though. Celiacs have a higher chance of having microscopic colitis than the general population. I'm not sure about "regular" colitis however, the kind they can see without a biopsy and microscope.

i have celiac. and in the 90s i was diagnosed with Colitis. i have no idea if it was Microscopic Colitis, or if it was really a celiac flare up and the doctors guessed Colitis. it was a good decade before my Celiac dx, and it was in Japan... they called it Colitis after deducing there was nothing wrong with me reproductively and by my Xray.

???

i imagine it's common to have both but not because of any causation.
