Are Doctors Following Current Biopsy Guidelines When Diagnosing Celiac Disease?
How tightly are doctors following current guidelines for diagnosing celiac disease? Current guidelines by the British Society of Gastroenterology recommend that doctors take at least four duodenal biopsy specimens at the time of upper gastrointestinal (UGI) endoscopy when looking for celiac disease. The practice has been shown to increase celiac diagnoses, and to reduced missed […]

Do Early Respiratory Infections Increase Risk for Celiac Disease?
Many researchers feel that the rising number of celiac disease cases supports the idea that common infections prior to the onset of autoimmune diseases could play a role in triggering the immune response. Do more respiratory infections in childhood mean a greater likelihood of celiac disease later in life? To answer that question, a team […]

Do We Have More Celiac Disease Because Fewer Children Are Dying?
Some evidence indicates that rates of celiac disease in the general population are increasing over time. Prior to the discovery of gluten’s role in celiac disease, the prognosis for celiac sufferers was bleak. Did higher betas of death keep celiac disease rates correspondingly lower?

Did You Know? Musings on Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Dermatitis Herpetiformis and Celiac Disease
I was told that I had irritable bowel disease about thirty years before being diagnosed with celiac disease. I avoided hard to digest foods such as corn, broccoli, beef and other foods difficult to digest, and instead I would, for instance, eat the bun of a hamburger, avoid steaks but eat the buttered buns and […]

What Can Genome-wide Pleiotropy Teach Us About Parkinson Disease and Autoimmune Disorders?
Although autoimmune disorders are not widely associated with Parkinson disease, there is increasing evidence for a link between immunity and neurodegenerative disorders. Indeed, both innate and adaptive immunity have been implicated in neurodegenerative disorders. A team of researchers recently set out to examine the connection between immunity and neurodegenerative disorders.
