Related Diseases and Conditions
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder with a genetic component, appearing to be linked to certain types of HLA genes. There are a number of other diseases that are autoimmune-mediated and appear to have similar genetic linkages.
These diseases are all autoimmune disorders which appear to have a higher incidence among people with celiac disease than in the general population. Treatment for CD will not cure these conditions.
Other Conditions: A number of other conditions have been reported that may occur because of untreated CD, and can be expected to improve when treated with a gluten-free diet.
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease where the surface of the small intestine that absorbs nutrients from food is damaged by a substance called gluten.
