Bardella, C. Agostoni, L. Doneda, A. Scriciolo, F. Brighenti, N. PellegriniAbstractBackground and AimsThe only treatment for celiac disease (CD) is strict, lifelong adherence to a gluten-free (GF) diet. To date, there are contrasting data concerning the nutritional adequacy of GF products and diet. There have been no studies that have assessed the adherence of individuals with CD to a Mediterranean diet (MD), a protective dietary regimen against major non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Therefore, we examined the adherence to an MD of a group of Italian individuals with CD and compared it with that of a healthy control group.Methods and ResultsIn a cross-sectional study, a sample of individuals with CD and a group of healthy subjects were included. The dietary habits of all participants were recorded using a validated food frequency questionnaire, and the adherence to an MD was determined using the Italian Mediterranean Index. Typical Mediterranean food consumption was not significantly different between individuals with CD and the healthy participants, except for fruits (P = 0.017). However, individuals with CD consumed significantly higher amounts of potatoes (P = 0.003) and red and processed meat (P = 0.005) than healthy participants. The resulting mean Italian Mediterranean Ind...

Background: Patients with autoimmune disorders (ADs) are at increased risk for celiac disease (CD), but data are conflicting on the risk of ADs in treated patients with CD. We aimed to assess the incidence of ADs in treated patients with CD. Methods: Using the Rochester Epidemiology Project, we retrospectively searched for the medical records at Mayo Clinic and Olmsted Medical Center from January 1997 to December 2015 for patients with CD who met accepted diagnostic criteria. For each patient with CD, we identified 2 age and sex-matched controls during the same study period. The incidence rate of AD diagnosis 5 years ...

Objectives: Coeliac disease (CD) is a systemic autoimmune disorder affecting about 1% of the population. Many patients remain undiagnosed or are diagnosed with substantial delay. We assessed diagnostic delays in symptomatic CD children in Central Europe (CE). Methods: Paediatric gastroenterologists in 5 CE countries retrospectively reported data of their patients diagnosed in 2016. Age at first CD-related symptom(s), first visit to paediatric gastroenterologist and confirmed diagnosis were used to determine diagnostic delays. Results: Data from 393 children (65% girls, median age 7 years, range 7 months to 18.5 yea...

Objectives: Screening for vitamin D status in celiac disease (CD) has been recommended but the literature provides varying support. We sought to assess the vitamin D status in newly diagnosed children with CD and in a non-CD control population and relate them to vitamin D intake. Methods: In a cross-sectional study, serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD) levels were drawn in children with newly diagnosed CD and compared with pediatric outpatients with functional abdominal complaints. Anthropometric data as well as vitamin D intake based on milk and multivitamin ingestion were collected. Results: Thirty-eight newly diag...

Publication date: January 2020Source: LWT, Volume 117Author(s): Marta Sahagún, Yaiza Benavent-Gil, Cristina M. Rosell, Manuel GómezAbstractThe association of diabetes on celiac disease together with the high glycemic index of gluten-free breads makes necessary the pursuit of a solution to reduce this glycemic response. Protein enrichment and changes on hydration level may be tools to get it. Thus, the aim of this study was to analyze the effect of two proteins (pea and egg white) on the digestibility and physical characteristics of gluten-free breads, with either the same hydration or specific volume. Protein...
