Celiac Disease

Celiac disease (CD) affects approximately 1% of the general population, although most cases remain unrecognized. Because CD is a multisystem disorder with protean clinical manifestations, a high index of suspicion is needed to make an appropriate diagnosis. A diagnosis of CD is made in a patient who is genetically predisposed based on the presence of compatible clinical features, positive highly specific celiac serologic findings, duodenal biopsies that document enteropathy, and improvement with a gluten-free diet.

ConclusionsThe worldwide prevalence of gastrointestinal disorders associated with tablet LT4 malabsorption, including lactose malabsorption andHelicobacter pylori infection, is high. Interactions with drugs or food can further increase this risk. Considering that all studies investigating the impact of switching patients from tablet to LS or SG found an improved thyroid balance, the latter formulations should be considered as first-line therapy for managing hypothyroidism.

Ribes Koninckx C Abstract Coeliac disease is a systemic immune-mediated disorder triggered by the ingestion of gluten, which is given in genetically predisposed subjects. It manifests with a wide variety of clinical symptoms, specific serological markers, HLA-DQ2/DQ8 haplotype and enteropathy. The criteria followed for this have usually been those established by the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) since 1969. These criteria have advanced from the need of several intestinal biopsies to, thanks to the development of serological tests of high sensitivity and speci...

The objectives of this scoping review were to identify and characterize studies examining nutrition assessment, interventions, and measures to monitor gluten-free diet (GFD) adherence/compliance in patients with celiac disease (CD). An electronic literature search of four databases (Cochrane Database for systematic reviews, CINAHL, Embase, and Ovid MEDLINE) was conducted to identify articles examining nutrition care in CD individuals. Except for narrative review, grey literature, and case study/report, all types of peer-reviewed articles published between January 2007 and August 2018 were eligible. There were a total of 10...

Fernando Alacid Jacobo A. Rubio-Arias Celiac disease (CD) is an immunological disorder that mainly affects the small intestine, generating an inflammatory process in response to the presence of gluten (a protein). Autoimmune diseases are part of a group of diseases that are difficult to diagnose without a specific protocol or consensus to detect them due to the number of symptoms and diseases with which it has a relationship. Therefore, the aim of this review was to analyze the diagnostic tools of CD used in middle-aged women, to compare the use and effectiveness of the different tools, and to propose a strategy for...

  Amazon reviews of the new Revised &Expanded Edition of Wheat Belly are coming in. In the original Wheat Belly book, I focused mostly on the history of wheat from Natufian porridge to modern whole wheat bread, the dramatic changes in wheat introduced by geneticists and agribusiness, and the effects it has on modern health. In Wheat Belly Total Health, I outlined a program to undo the harm incurred by wheat consumption and additional steps to take to, for instance, reverse insulin resistance. In Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox, I provided a step-by-step, day-by-day plan to follow the Wheat Belly lifestyle. And, of ...

Abstract Celiac disease (CD) is a chronic immune-mediated disease in which gluten ingestion leads to damage of the small intestinal mucosa in genetically susceptible individuals. The enteropathy is mainly induced by the production of IFN-γ from intestinal CD4+T cells that recognise gliadin peptides following deamidation by tissue transglutaminase. The only available therapy is a strict, lifelong gluten-free diet (GFD). This diet is strongly demanding for patients, which justifies the search for alternative strategies. The enzyme approach is one promising strategy to address this issue. In particular, transam...

Buckwheat is a plant used for many purposes, such as consumed as a food and used in the treatment of diseases. It is a good source of many vitamins and minerals and has balanced nutritional value. Because of its nutrient content and many positive effects on human health, buckwheat has become a functional food, recently. Main effects of buckwheat on human health are its hypotensive, hypoglycemic, hypocholesterolemic, neuroprotective and antioxidant effects. Thus, it is considered an alternative food component in dietary treatment for chronic and metabolic diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension and celiac disease. Also, it...

In diseases where there is a large subjective component, such as celiac disease (CD), patient reported-outcomes (PRO) endpoints are highly relevant. However, there is a gap in knowledge about which PRO endpoints and instruments should be used for clinical trials for treatment of celiac disease.
