    The Intersection of Celiac Disease and Inflammatory Bowel Disease

    The Intersection of Celiac Disease and Inflammatory Bowel Disease

    Like celiac disease, ulcerative colitis is a chronic autoimmune disease where the body mistakenly attacks itself. Similarly to celiac, it may be triggered by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Recent research links celiac and inflammatory bowel diseases like ulcerative colitis, but which comes first? Does one cause the other? If a patient tests positive for celiac disease should they be automatically be screened for inflammatory bowel disease at the time of diagnosis? We’ll discuss this and more with Dr. Maria Ines Pinto-Sanchez on this episode of Raising Celiac.

    The History of Celiac Disease

    The History of Celiac Disease

    Celiac disease is a genetically-mediated autoimmune disease that can affect any system of the body. The only treatment is a lifelong gluten-free diet. In people with celiac disease, gluten damages the lining of the intestines. This can prevent them from absorbing important nutrients from food and cause a variety of symptoms like abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, fatigue, weight loss, mouth ulcers, and growth issues to name a few. An estimated 1 percent of people in North America are affected by this autoimmune disease — typically more girls than boys — and many are undiagnosed. And, celiac is also closely related to many other chronic diseases including type 1 diabetes and thyroid disease. This season on Raising Celiac, we’re going to explore why…we’ll talk to experts across the United States and around the world to discuss why celiac disease is so complicated and how better understanding it may be the key to learning more about other autoimmune conditions. Today we talk about the history of celiac disease with Dr. Dascha Weir, the Clinical Director of the Celiac Disease Program at Boston Children’s Hospital.
