Coeliac disease and risk of sepsis
- Balancing health benefits and social sacrifices: A qualitative study of how screening-detected celiac disease impacts adolescents' quality of life. Rosén, Anna; Ivarsson, Anneli; Nordyke, Katrina; Karlsson, Eva; Carlsson, Annelie; Danielsson, Lars; Högberg, Lotta; Emmelin, Maria // BMC Pediatrics;2011, Vol. 11 Issue 1, p32
Background: Celiac disease often goes undiagnosed. Mass screening might be an option to reduce the public health burden of untreated celiac disease. However, mass screening is still controversial since it is uncertain whether the benefits of early detection outweigh the possible negative...
- Coeliac disease. Corazza, G. R.; Villanacci, V. // Journal of Clinical Pathology;Jun2005, Vol. 58 Issue 6, p573
This article focuses on the coeliac disease with discussing findings of some past histological diagnoses. Coeliac disease (CD), reportedly, is a gluten dependent enteropathy with a very high prevalence and an increased mortality rate. Although the greatest diagnostic challenge in CD concerns the...
- Where Are All Those Patients With Celiac Disease? Green, Peter H. R. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Jul2007, Vol. 102 Issue 7, p1461
Celiac disease is considered to occur in âˆ¼1% of the U.S. population. It is, however, markedly underdiagnosed. In this issue, Fasano and his colleagues have continued their work in demonstrating just where all these patients are. Their current study explores a case finding policy in the...
- Cardiomyopathy Associated With Celiac Disease. Goel, Nisheeth K.; McBane, Robert D.; Kamath, Patrick S. // Mayo Clinic Proceedings;May2005, Vol. 80 Issue 5, p674
Celiac disease or celiac sprue is predominantly a disease of the small intestine characterized by chronic malabsorption in genetically susceptible individuals who ingest grains containing gluten, such as wheat, barley, and rye. Although previously believed to be uncommon, celiac disease may be...
- CD trumps tropical sprue. // GIG Newsletter;Spring2011, Vol. 34 Issue 2, p42
The article reports on the tendency that celiac disease is the most common cause of diarrhea and malabsorption in 94 patients rather than tropical sprue based on a study published in the March 3, 2011 issue of "Indian Journal of Gastroenterology."
- Hypoalbuminaemia and coeliac disease. Spiller, Robin // Gut;Jul2008, Vol. 57 Issue 7, p922
A quiz concerning the diagnosis of a 23-year-old woman with coeliac disease, positive serology and typical duodenal histology is presented.
- Coeliac disease and schizophrenia: population based case control study with linkage of Danish national registers. Eaton, William W.; Mortensen, Preben Bo; Agerbo, Esben; Byrne, Majella; Mors, Ole; Ewald, Henrik // BMJ: British Medical Journal (International Edition);2/21/2004, Vol. 328 Issue 7437, p438

- THE HIDDEN REASON YOU FEEL BLOATED. Ondash, E'Louise // Marie Claire (US Edition);Feb2006, Vol. 13 Issue 2, p166
The article presents information on reasons why women feel bloated. They could have celiac disease, a common reaction to wheat and other grains. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder in which the body cannot properly digest gluten--a protein found in wheat, rye, barley, and triticale. Tests...
- Six new coeliac disease loci replicated in an Italian population confirm association with coeliac disease. Romanos, J.; Barisani, D.; Trynka, G.; Zhernakova, A.; Bardella, M. I.; Wijmenga, C. // Journal of Medical Genetics;Jan2009, Vol. 46 Issue 1, p60
Background and aims: The first genome wide association study on coeliac disease (CD) and its follow-up have identified eight new loci that contribute significantly towards CD risk. Seven of these loci contain genes controlling adaptive immune responses, including 1L21/L21 (4q27), RGS1 (1q31),...
