Every day, researchers are working to get a better understanding of celiac disease and its various presentations. Ongoing research is also exploring potential drug treatments for celiac disease.
Investigators at the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University have found that, despite cognitive effects reported by celiac disease patients, there is no increased risk for dementia before or after a celiac disease diagnosis.
Researchers are seeking children and adolescents with celiac disease to participate in a research study that involves a one-time, in-person interview.
Researchers at the University of Oslo have developed a blood test that provides a rapid, painless and easier celiac disease diagnosis – even for those already on a gluten-free diet
The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) recently covered a study that is exploring the main cause behind celiac disease.
The origins of celiac disease have remained a mystery, but today researchers are making progress on what may cause this condition to develop.
People with celiac disease have an increased risk for developing pneumonia, particularly in their first year after diagnosis.
According to the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, children who have frequent infections in their first 18 months of life have an increased risk of later developing celiac disease.
A recent study examined the hypothesis that a person would better cope with celiac disease if they practiced self-compassion and, as a result, would experience an improved quality of life and be more adherent with the gluten-free diet.
