Authors: Graziano M, Rossi M Abstract INTRODUCTION: Coeliac disease is a gluten-induced immune-mediated enteropathy, characterised by the expression of specific genotypes and the production of autoantibodies. The inflammatory process specifically targets the intestinal mucosa, but gastrointestinal and extraintestinal signs and symptoms can also be present. Non-coeliac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) can be diagnosed in individuals who have intestinal and/or extraintestinal symptoms related to the ingestion of gluten, but do not have autoantibodies and do not suffer from lesions in the duodenal mucosa. Among the extrainte...

SanderAbstractThe risk of epileptic seizures seems increased in several systemic autoimmune disorders including systemic lupus erythematosus, type 1 diabetes mellitus, myasthenia gravis, celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, Hashimoto’s encephalopathy, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis, neuromyelitis optica, and bullous pemphigoid. Immune dysfunction may be partly responsible for this association. Elevated levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines, autoantibodies seen in these autoimmune disorders and ...

Authors: Pritchard L, Wilson S, Griffin J, Pearce G, Murray IA, Lewis S Abstract OBJECTIVE: There are little data on the prevalence of reduced bone mineral density (BMD) in young adult patients with coeliac disease; guidelines do not support routine investigation of these patients. We assessed the prevalence of reduced BMD in our patients by age. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Prospective observational study of 260 coeliac patients having DXA one year after commencing gluten-free diet. Nonparametric tests and regression were used. RESULTS: Median age was 51years, BMI 24 and 85 (32.7%) were male. Reduced BMD was asso...

We report the case of a patient, under chronic therapy with mycophenolate mofetil , during a diagnostic workup for a chronic diarrhea, which presents a duodenal villous atrophy ( VA) with negative celiac serology, which is a diagnostic challenge. VA secondary to MMF is a very unusual adverse effect. Just a few cases have been reported in the literature. PMID: 30511578 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

It continues to happen: I run into people who say to me “I follow the Wheat Belly lifestyle. I eat gluten-free!” When I ask them what that means, they tell me that they only eat gluten-free bread, pasta, pizza, cookies, etc. I’m not entirely sure why this misinterpretation of the Wheat Belly message is so common. Let’s talk about this important distinction, as being gluten-free can be an absolute health and weight disaster, unlike the magnificent health and weight loss we enjoy on the Wheat Belly lifestyle when done right. It’s perfectly fine to be gluten-free, i.e., avoiding wheat, rye, and b...

Publication date: Available online 5 December 2018Source: Food ChemistryAuthor(s): Miguel Ribeiro, Fernando M. NunesAbstractIf there is a disease in which many myths are part of the daily lives of both patients and clinicians as well as researchers, this must be celiac disease. Here, we discuss the possibility that modern wheat varieties used by man do not have led to the increased prevalence of celiac disease.

A 61-year-old male presented to our Accident&Emergency department with a three-day history of nausea and vomiting. On examination, he had a soft non-tender abdomen but pronounced pulsation of his abdominal aorta. A CT angiogram revealed a 6 cm juxta-renal abdominal aortic aneurysm with thrombus within the aneurysm sac and juxta-renal neck segment. There was also moderate atherosclerotic change of the common, internal and external iliac arteries bilaterally. Given the lack of a suitable infra-renal sealing zone for the stent graft, he underwent a complex endovascular aortic aneurysm repair using a stent graft (Cook Medi...
