AbstractCeliac disease (CD) is an immune-mediated enteropathy triggered by dietary ingestion of gluten in genetically susceptible patients. CD is often diagnosed by a “case-finding” approach of symptomatic patients. In recent times, the diagnostic paradigm has shifted to investigate patients who may be asymptomatic, but are at high risk of developing CD due to shared genetic susceptibilities. These high-risk groups include first-degree relatives of CD patient s and patients with Type 1 diabetes mellitus, autoimmune thyroid disease, Down’s syndrome, and Turner syndrome. Moreover, CD is often diagnosed as t...

To the Editor: Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease resulting from an immune reaction to gluten that has a prevalence of 1% in the United States.1 Here, we present a unique case of celiac disease in a patient that initially presented with imaging findings of mesenteric fat stranding and hyperemia with prominent associated lymph nodes and small bowel hyperemia. .

ConclusionOur data suggest a role for CHI3L1 underlying the pathophysiology of CD and represent a starting point aiming to inspire new investigation that proves the possible use of CHI3L1 as a diagnostic factor and therapeutic target.

This article describes the neurologic sequelae of various nutritional micronutrient deficiencies, celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and liver disease. Where relevant, appropriate treatments for these conditions are also discussed. The developing field of the microbiome and nervous system interaction is also outlined. RECENT FINDINGS Pathology in the gastrointestinal system can affect the nervous system when it causes micronutrient deficiency, when immune responses created by the gastrointestinal system affect the nervous system, when toxins caused by gastrointestinal organ failure harm the nervous system, and ...

Celiac disease (CD), triggered by the ingestion of gluten, occurs in people genetically predisposed to develop the chronic autoimmune condition. During the past few decades, doctors have learned much about how the disease develops, including genetic and other risk factors. However, results from studies on whether people with CD have an increased risk of premature death linked to the condition have been mixed. A recent study shows a small but statistically significant increased mortality rate. Celiac disease can affect the entire body Until recently, CD was considered a mainly pediatric gastrointestinal disorder, associated...
