Clinical characteristics and long-term health in celiac disease patients diagnosed in early childhood: Large cohort study
Early detection of celiac disease could theoretically prevent most of the disease-associated complications, but long-term effects of this approach are unclear.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Psoriasis is associated with cardiovascular disease, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), metabolic syndrome, and psychiatric disease. Furthermore, psoriasis is associated with immune dysregulation and systemic inflammation. OBJECTIVE: To determine the association of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis with IBD and the association of the combination of psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis with IBD and other gastrointestinal illnesses. METHODS: Discharge data from the 2000-2014 Nationwide Inpatient Sample, Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP), which approximates a 20% stratified...
We read with interest the article by Trovato et al. . In this article, tweets for celiac disease (CD) were noted to be less common than several other conditions, such as cancer. However, ‘gluten’ and ‘free’ were the most commonly co-cited words with celiac disease. In addition to social media, we believe that other online platforms are a key information source for patients. We sought to assess the popularity of Google searches for ‘gluten-free diet’.
Since December 2019, the whole world has been affected by the infection caused by the new coronavirus SARS-CoV2, which has had profound consequences for public health and the economy, but above all has left a deep mark on the peoples' minds . There is still no clear evidence on how the lockdown may have affected the quality of life of patients with chronic diseases, especially in children, and if this condition may have influenced the course of multifactorial pathologies in which the mental, as well as the organic component, could play an important role [2,3].
The COVID-19 pandemic has had an immeasurably negative health and economic impact on the world. Since the first reported cluster of pneumonia in China in December 2019, as of May 2020 the virus has infected over 4000,000 people, with over 285,000 deaths worldwide . In response, governments have enacted major social restriction measures to prevent the dissemination of the virus, including lockdowns of cities, provinces and even the whole countries. This disruption has created downstream effects on society and generated major changes in the way that health care is delivered.
A 56 year-old-men, with history of celiac disease (CD), was referred to our endoscopy unit based on the suspicion of a submucosal gastric tumor. During the esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) a submucosal lesion of about 3 cm was observed at the level of the great curvature of the gastric antrum. A computed tomography (CT) scan showed a 32 mm diameter cyst inside the gastric wall, with wall contrast-enhancement, suspected for parasitic cyst. An endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) was performed with a linear scope (G F-UCT 180 - Olympus, Hamburg) showing, inside the gastric muscular layer, the presence of a submucosal lesion...
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 ...
The contact/movement restrictions imposed by the current COVID-19 pandemic had a deep impact on primary health care, with possible negative fallouts on even common and usually benign gastrointestinal disorders, as clearly illustrated by the clinical history we briefly summarize herein.
Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) causes severe complications and deaths all over the world. COVID-19 also has indirect effects from the lockdown and the possible lack of food. We aimed to evaluate the perception of this in Celiac Disease (CeD) patients who require a lifelong gluten-free diet as a therapy.
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.
Celiac disease (CD) is an autoimmune systemic disorder elicited by gluten, which can be considered a major public health problem worldwide. CD is characterized by the presence of specific autoantibodies and typical histological features in genetically predisposed individuals . The gluten-free diet (GFD) is the sole safe and effective treatment for CD . A recent meta-analysis by Singh et al.  reported a global prevalence in the general population of 1.4% based on serology and of 0.7% based on biopsy.
