Study Looks at Rise in Celiac Disease Diagnosis Rates in Young Children

Posted by , under Related Diseases

A new study from Sweden looks at the rise in Celiac Disease diagnosis rates in children under 2 years of age.  The researchers looked at 475 children and found that kids who experienced three or more parental reported infections, regardless of the type of infection during their first 6 months, were much more likely to then be diagnosed with Celiac Disease later in life.

The study – which was published in the journal BMC Pediatrics –  also showed that children were affected at a higher rate if their parents introduced large amounts of gluten into their diet soon after they ended breast feeding.
