Age at gluten introduction not linked to risk for celiac disease

January 30, 2015

Results from a prospective, multinational study indicate that age at first introduction to gluten is not an independent risk factor for celiac disease.

“The incidence of celiac disease is increasing in the Western world. The optimal age at first introduction to gluten to avoid development of celiac disease has been rigorously debated,” study researcher Carin Andrén Aronsson, MSc, of Lund University in Malmö, Sweden, and colleagues wrote. “Several studies hypothesized that the age at first introduction to gluten could influence the onset of the disease. Others claim that breast-feeding and its interaction with gluten during weaning could reduce the risk for celiac disease.”
