Relatives, spouses of celiac disease patients at risk for autoimmune disease

July 7, 2015

A recent study found first-degree relatives and spouses of individuals with celiac disease have increased risk for nonceliac autoimmune diseases.

“The prevalence of celiac disease in first-degree relatives of individuals with celiac is approximately 10%. Despite these findings, little is known about the risk of nonceliac autoimmune disease in these individuals,” Louise Emilsson, MD, PhD, from Oslo University and primary care research unit, Värmlands Nysäter, said in a press release. “We found convincing results that close relatives are also at risk for these conditions, but more surprisingly, we found that spouses may also be at risk.”
