I am almost celiac, could be the cause of my Hashimoto's Disease?
been diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease in 2005.
then, I've been treated with Levothyroxine (Eutirox 50) and all the
time well controlled.
results reported Antibodies: Anti - TPO (Microsomals) >1300 Ul
/ mL (reference value < 60) and Anti-Thyroglobulin
54,6 Il / mL (reference value < 60).
recently learnt I am almost celiac.
think this could be the cause of my Hashimoto's Disease?
you very much in advance.
forward to hearing from you soon.
to research reported on in the medical journal Digestive Diseases
and Sciences, a significant number of patients with autoimmune thyroid
disease also have celiac disease.
studied 172 patients with autoimmune thyroid disease, and two control
groups, and found that the 3.4% of patients with autoimmune thyroiditis
had celiac disease, and the prevalence was only 0.6% and 0.25% among
the control groups.
also found that undiagnosed celiac disease may actually be part of
the process that triggers an underlying autoimmune disease.
found that the various antibodies that indicate celiac disease - organ-specific
autoantibodies (i.e., thyroid antibodies) -- will disappear after
3 to 6 months of a gluten-free diet.
thyroiditis or chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease
in which the thyroid gland is gradually destroyed by a variety of
cell and antibody mediated immune processes.
not clear what causes celiac disease.
the exact cause of celiac disease is unknown, doctors have discovered
that it often runs in families.
have discovered that some gene mutations seem to increase the risk
of celiac disease, but having those gene mutations doesn't mean you're
certain to have celiac disease.
means that other risk factors play a role in whether you'll develop
