Poorly controlled celiac disease could up lymphoma risk

Great article on yet another potential serious side effect of celiac disease. Here are the main ideas (I quote from the article):

  • People who have poorly controlled celiac disease may have a higher risk of developing lymphoma, according to a study published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine.
  • “The risk was heightened among those with persistent villous atrophy but was less prominent and did not meet statistical significance among those with mucosal healing.Compared with patients with mucosal healing, those with persistent villous atrophy had an increased risk for LPM.”
  • Celiac sufferers unable to control the disease through a gluten-free diet may have a higher risk of lymphoma
