Increased Prevalence of Celiac Disease and need for Routine Screening among patients with Osteoporosis
Remember that celiac disease is an allergy to the gluten portion in grains, principally wheat. This study found a direct correlation with the severity of celiac disease serum markers and the severity of osteoporosis. We already know that inflammation is a player in osteoporosis and that celiac disease up-regulates the immune system, so I guess the results of this study shouldn’t be a surprise.
The author suggests that the prevalence of patients with osteoporosis that have celiac disease is high enough to warrant routine screening.
