[Prevalence of celiac disease in diabetic children and adolescents].
Rev Med Chil 1998; 126(3):293-5RM

Abstract

BACKGROUND

Celiac disease is more common in patients with insulin dependent diabetes than in the general population.

AIM

To detect celiac disease in diabetic children and adolescents.

PATIENTS AND METHODS

IgA antigliadin, IgG antireticulin and IgG antiendomysium antibodies were measured in 67 diabetic children (35 female), aged between 4 and 18 years old.

RESULTS

Only one male adolescent, aged 18 years old, without gastrointestinal symptoms, had a significant elevation of antireticulin and antiendomysium antibodies. His intestinal biopsy showed subtotal villous atrophy, consistent with celiac disease.

CONCLUSIONS

The prevalence of celiac disease in these diabetic children is 1:67 (1.5%). Similar figures have been reported elsewhere.
