Fructans Suspect in Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity
(MedPage Today) -- Randomized double-blind trial casts doubt on need for gluten-free diets in NCGS
Publication date: December 2018Source: LWT, Volume 98Author(s): L.P. Sciammaro, C. Ferrero, M.C. PuppoAbstractBaked flour products are basic in people's diet; the problem arises when celiac people tend to follow this kind of diet. In this work we exploit the benefit of American carob, Prosopis alba flour (PAF) in developing gluten-free muffins jointly with corn flour (CF) and rice flour (RF). All muffins obtained presented very good physical and sensory characteristics. The muffin with the highest amount of PAF presented low chewiness and was the most adhesive. Crumb structure of muffins with PAF presented alveoli of more ...

Conclusions: An EHR-based PheWAS method is a powerful, efficient, and cost-effective method to screen for possible CD comorbidities and validate associations at the population level. Ours is the first PheWAS of CD to confirm a significant association of eosinophilic disorders of the esophagus with CD in a controlled study.
Objectives: Assessing the seroprevalence and the prevalence of definite coeliac disease (CD) in the German LIFE Child Health study cohort including immunoglobulin A (IgA) antibodies against tissue transglutaminase (IgA-TTG) in addition to IgG antibodies against deamidated gliadin peptides (IgG-DGP) and human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DQ2/8 genotyping. Methods: Samples from children and adolescents were first screened for IgA-TTG and IgG-DGP. If IgA-TTG was above 0.5 times the upper limit of normal and/or IgG-DGP was positive, IgA antibodies against endomysium (IgA-EmA) were measured, and HLA was genotyped. In patients w...

Does a gluten-free diet impact the risk of developing nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in patients with celiac disease?Alimentary Pharmacology &Therapeutics
There's already a known link between celiac disease and type 1 diabetes -- approximately 10 percent of people with type 1 diabetes also have celiac disease.

ConclusionsMost of the few available economic studies of CD assess testing and diagnosis costs, especially in Europe. Methods of testing generally are considered cost effective when they combine diagnostic modalities in symptomatic patients. Most costs to a payer of managing CD derive from outpatient care. Following GFD initiation, patients lose fewer days from work and school than pretreatment.
