Infections in Early Life and Development of Celiac Disease Infections in Early Life and Development of Celiac Disease
Might respiratory or gastrointestinal infections in early childhood contribute to the development of celiac disease?American Journal of Epidemiology
I would like to congratulate authors on excellent surgical technique documented in the study video.
CONCLUSIONS: Tests based on anti-TG IgA are more accurate for detecting CD in children with type 1 diabetes than anti-DGP IgA. A high percentage of diabetic children carry HLA alleles predisposing to CD, which indicates that genetic screening in this group of patients is not obligated.

Compliance with a gluten-free diet (GFD) is difficult at all ages but particularly for teenagers due to social, cultural, economic, and practical pressures. The multidisciplinary team responsible for the treat...
ConclusionOur study did not reveal any significant relationship between H. pylori and CD risk, even taking into account other confounders. More importantly, our findings do not support a “protective” role of H. pylori infection against CD, as previously reported. Therefore, there are no reasons to avoid eradication of H. pylori also in subject genetically susceptible for CD.
When I was traveling in India, I had the privilege of studying Ayurvedic medicine with traditional Master Healers. Surrounded by lakes, oceans and mountains, Kerala, India, is the birthplace of Ayurveda medicine. My plane landed in Mumbai. From there, I made the 800-mile trip to Kerala down on the southwestern-most tip of the Indian peninsula. With origins dating back 6,000 years, Kerala is the birthplace of Ayurvedic medicine. I spent a lot of time at the AyurMana or “ancient healing house.” This is the oldest existing school of Ayurvedic medicine in the world. It was there that I observed how quickly...
Conclusion No difference in the prevalence of CD between patients with IBS and patients without IBS at a tertiary medical center was observed. Our findings do not support routine celiac serologic or genetic testing in patients with IBS in all US populations.
Conclusions: In this study of more than 29,000 patients with CD, we found no increased risk of HSP before or after CD.
Abstract The wheat seed storage proteins gliadin and glutenin are encoded by multigenes. Gliadins are further classified into α-, γ-, δ- and ω-gliadins. Genes encoding α-gliadins belong to a large multigene family, whose members are located on the homoeologous group 6 chromosomes at the Gli-2 loci. Genes encoding other gliadins are located on the homoeologous group 1 chromosomes at the Gli-1 loci. Two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2-DE) was used to characterize and profile the gliadins. The gliadins in aneuploid Chinese Spring wheat lines were then compared in this s...
A gluten-free or grain-free diet can pose risks for someone who is not highly sensitive to gluten. Such a diet is also unlikely to provide benefits.
