By Kathryn Doyle, Reuters Health. Reuters Health — Girls diagnosed with celiac disease tend to be slightly shorter than their peers and boys to be underweight, but the size differences are not significant or concerning, Israeli researchers say. The study of more than 2 million teens who underwent medical exams over nearly two decades also found that celiac is being diagnosed more often now than in the past. Celiac disease CD is an autoimmune disorder that damages the small intestine and interferes with the absorption of nutrients from food. People with CD must avoid gluten, a protein in wheat, rye and barley. Without following the proper diet, CD can lead to complications such as malnutrition, low bone density, lactose intolerance and infertility. The new study ultimately clarifies that regardless of gluten-free diet adherence, body measurements at late adolescence including final height are only marginally affected, said lead study author Dr.
More and more Americans are giving up this protein found in wheat, rye and barley. Some of them suffer from celiac disease but others suspect gluten is the culprit in a host of other health problems. When I was a kid, I was always the shortest person in my class. Finally concerned, our doctor ordered an extensive endocrinology work-up for both of us. Now, 30 years later, my year-old son Jacob is the shortest in his class. The working diagnosis is once again constitutional growth delay. Jacob also has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder inattentive type and is iron deficient. We suspected that Jacob might have undiagnosed gluten enteropathy also known as celiac disease.
