Really? Celiac Disease Is Influenced by Season of Birth

New York Times (blog)

But even as awareness of celiac disease grows, its cause remains unclear. One hypothesis is that the season in which a person is born may influence the development of this digestive disorder. Some researchers suspect that those born in the spring and ...

My daughter has a March birthday as does one of her friends (who also has Celiac). And her first winter was a rough winter, illness-wise. Seems like as good as a theory as any.

On reading the NIHS blurb I have to ask if the folks who did the study are nuts.

they split the calendar year into four quarters, and the percentage of celiacs found in each quarter was 27-25-25-23.

Let's see now, two of the quarters held exactly 1/4 of the celiac birthdays, and the other two quarters were all of TWO PERCENT HIGH OR LOW?

And that's somehow statistically significant, not just float, noise, or other sampling error?

I'd really love to hear some professional statisticians comment about that, because if I was getting numbers like that from a survey I would say at best that the season MIGHT have a VERY SMALL influence. Their conclusion that the season is of real significance? Based on a two percent difference? Aw, come on guys, that's an awfully slim percent.

While I usually say that any celiac research is a positive thing - I stand corrected - what a waste of research time and money.

I was born in August, but Mom was a January baby.

But hey, if there is research money out there for the taking, I'm sure these people were glad to take it. <_<

One thing to keep in mind is that the percent of babies born each season is NOT constant-- April has the lowest number of births in the US, while September has the most.

If the time of year with the fewest births has the greatest number of celiac births, well, that's interesting...

    • I went to a naturopath because of gradually decreasing kidney function and was diagnosed with Celiac's.  For me, when I get accidentally glutened, I don't get symptoms until I've had that gluten for awhile, like several weeks. Then, I start feeling like I've got a bad flu coming on. Everybody is different.  It's not like an allergy where symptoms are a direct result of exposure.  
    • High methane can be related to fructose malabsorption.
    • Expanding on TexasJen's thoughts about posting for new roommate(s) next summer...... people with peanut, tree nut or other food allergies, especially if they are anaphylactic to those foods, could make excellent roommates as they have their own problems with food so they can immediately identify with AND respect your need to not get cross contaminated.
    • There is no such thing as a gluten allergy test. There could be a wheat allergy test but nothing such as a gluten allergy test -- at least not from reputable medical testing. There IS a celiac blood panel but that in no way is a gluten allergy. Celiac disease is not an ALLERGY to gluten; it is an autoimmune disease, an autoimmune reaction to gluten NOT an allergic reaction. It IS possible to have both an allergy to wheat AND celiac disease concurrently.  If I were you, I would insist on a dh biopsy done the CORRECT way. 60% of those with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel. If you get a positive dh biopsy then no further testing is needed -- the biopsy is definitive.  
    • Umm, I SOO want to cook for you. I make very flavorful gluten free dishes all the time. I tend to over season a bit I will admit. If you want I can give you links to a bunch of gluten free condiments, spices, etc.
      Baked goods....yeah store stuff sucked for me, dry cardboard, I craved moist gooy dough, I craved stuff that melted in my mouth. SO I started a gluten free bakery, and everything I make is SUPER moist. It is targeted at being moist, and rich to satisfy that craving....There are a few companies that offer some stuff I might suggest. I can give you some interesting recipes also. I post several in the recipe section that might help out.

      I have a food bucket list myself. Stuff with gluten, stuff that yes I can recreate but the pricing is not worth it. I have my family notified if I am dying like 100% going to die in the next 24 hours to bring me the food on the list. Number one is a monte cristo, I can make it gluten free...but paying $20 to make a bloody sandwich is retarded. I also have a funny will that I am to be buried with a specific list of foods that I can not eat, and a banquet to be served grave side...also some funny other things in my will, like requiring everyone to show up dressed in costume as their favorite character and me to be dressed as Alucard from Hellsing Ultimate. Anyway on one other note if you keep on complaining about it and saying your going to eat it anyway despite the issues. Stop wasting our time, we tried to help, we told you what can happen, and we gave you options. If you still wish to go out like that, then I hate to say it but please stop trolling us and leave.
