Celiac Disease After Onset of Type 1 Diabetes
This article looks at celiac disease (and allergy to gluten containing grains such as wheat) as being associated with type I diabetes in children. I would take a different view of the results. What if the altered physiology of the GI tract from food allergy turn out to be a promoting factor for increased upregulation of the immune system leading to autoimmunty against the pancreas? 60% of those identified had celiac disease at the time of diagnosis of diabetes. Sounds like a rational hypothesis to me..
