The coeliac stomach: A review of the literature
Beyond the small intestine, coeliac disease (CeD) may affect other gastrointestinal tracts, including the stomach. However, various studies have reported conflicting results regarding the association between CeD and gastric manifestations. The aim of this study was to analyze the existing literature on gastric involvement in CeD. A literature search was conducted in bibliographic databases of Embase, PubMed, Scopus, and Web of Science. Studies reporting the association between CeD and gastric disorders were examined in detail and are fully described in the review.
How symptoms and antibodies related to SARS-CoV-2 infection develop in patients with celiac disease (CD) is unclear. We aimed to investigate the impact of SARS-CoV-2 infection in CD patients.
Clinical elements differentiating enteropathy due to angiotensin II-receptor-blockers (ARBs-E) from coeliac disease (CD) are poorly defined. The histopathological features on duodenal and gastric biopsies in these patients still need to be investigated.
Few data are available regarding the trend of IgA anti-transglutaminase antibodies (TGA-IgA) in children with celiac disease (CD) on a gluten-free diet (GFD). Our aim is to examine the normalization time of CD serology in a large pediatric population, and its predictors.
The gluten-free diet (GFD) is the key treatment of celiac disease (CD) and is useful in non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) . GFD is a complex diet, only apparently easy to handle, especially in Mediterranean countries. In fact, it is often necessary to change eating habits, for instance for greater convenience several patients often prefer to consuming industrial gluten-free products (GFPs), which are often lack of nutritional elements such as vitamins, micronutrients and fiber and are rich in lipids.
A 60-year-old male presented to the emergency department with severe anemia (hemoglobin 6.3 g/dL) on routine follow-up. The patient reported no visible gastrointestinal blood loss. His past medical condition was unremarkable and was not taking any medication. Laboratory studies revealed a microcytic (VGM 61.6 fL) and hypochromic (CHGM 26.4 g/dL) anemia, with iron deficiency. The patient subsequently underwent upper endoscopy and colonoscopy, the latter one unremarkable. A diffuse nodular mucosa with scalloping was found in the second part of the duodenum on esophagogastroduodenoscopy, and biopsies revealed incre...
We aimed to describe the socio-demographic, behavioral and clinical profiles of adult patients with newly diagnosed celiac disease (CeD) and their possible association with QoL and psychological symptoms.
A new concept, metabolic-associated fatty liver disease, has been proposed as an alternative to NAFLD to better describe the metabolic alterations in celiac disease.Liver International
AbstractGastrointestinal diseases such as celiac disease, functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGIDs), inflammatory bowel disease (IBDs) and acute or chronic diarrhea are quite frequent in the pediatric population. The approach, the diagnosis and management can be changed in the 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic era. This review has focused on: i) the current understanding of digestive involvement in severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infected children and adolescents and the clinical implications of COVID-19 for pediatric gastroenterologists, ii) the impact of COVID-19 on the clinica...
Duodenal dysbiosis has been suggested to possibly influence the clinical manifestations of coeliac disease (CD), both at onset and when symptoms persist despite a gluten-free diet (GFD).
